IAMCR statement on Catalonia

06/10/2017

IAMCR stands in solidarity with academics and journalists in Catalonia who condemn the abrogation of the right to freedom of expression as a result of actions by the Spanish military policy and Government in connection with the Regional Government’s referendum on whether Catalonia should become self-governing.

These actions include searches of and threats against news media organisations, the blocking and closure of websites and lawsuits and formal complaints against academics and other professionals.

IAMCR protests these measures which intimidate citizens and suppress political expression. University institutions and media organisations must be able to operate without state interference if the democratic process is to proceed in an open and transparent way.

This statement was drafted by IAMCR’s Clearinghouse on Public Statements at the request of IAMCR members at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Universitat Jaume I and Universitat Ramon Llull and approved by IAMCR’s president, Janet Wasko.
