Ousted President of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont has rallied Catalan citizens «to persevere in the only attitude that can make us winners» during a televised speech from Girona on Saturday. Puigdemont stated, «the best way to defend the achievements reached to date is the democratic opposition to the application of article 155,» adding, «We must do this by preserving ourselves from repression and... Еще threats, doing it without never leaving, never in life, at any time, civic and peaceful conduct.» Catalonia's independence vote was held hours before the Spanish Senate voted in favour of invoking Article 155. The measure was triggered by Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy on Saturday October 28, allowing Madrid to establish de facto rule over Catalonia.
