Jordi Cuixart is a Spanish businessman, politician and cultural activist from Catalonia. He is the president of Òmnium Cultural, a non-profit cultural organisation founded in 1961 with more than 160,000 members in Catalonia. As part of his role in the pro-independence demonstrations prior to the Catalan independence referendum of 2017, he has been imprisoned since October 2017 under charges of sedition and violent rebellion brought by the Spanish prosecutor's office.

Summary

A book written from jail by Jordi Cuixart, who has made his imprisonment a tool to denounce repression and defend human rights.

WE'LL DO IT AGAIN is a personal and collective manifesto, vital and political, meditated after more than 20 months in prison and 52 sessions at the Democracy Judgment of the Supreme Court. An emotional manifesto but rigorous, direct and brave, which leads us to lose our fear and conscientiously exercise the fundamental freedoms threatened in Catalonia and throughout the world.

It invites us not to faint, to protest, to listen... and to the permanent nonviolent mobilization. Because when injustice is the law, civil disobedience is a right.

When you have been robbed of freedom as a result of an injustice, what do you have left? You have the possibility of obeying your conscience and not falling into resignation or frustration. Neither as a person nor as a people. Jordi Cuixart, the president of Òmnium Cultural, has decided to transform the sadness of a cell into the best expression of the shared struggle for self-determination and human rights.

So that our children can live in a fairer and freer country, we will do it again.

With a foreword by Jamila Raqib, Executive Director of the Albert Einstein Institution in the United States, founded in 1983 by Gene Sharp and dedicated to promoting the study and use of nonviolent action.

  • Author’s biography

    Jordi Cuixart (born 1975) is a Spanish businessman, politician and cultural activist from Catalonia. He is the president of Òmnium Cultural, a non-profit cultural organisation founded in 1961 with more than 160,000 members and 40 local branches in Catalonia. As part of his role in the pro-independence demonstrations prior to the Catalan independence referendum of 2017, he has been imprisoned since October 2017 under charges of sedition and violent rebellion brought by the Spanish prosecutor's office. He was sentenced to nine years of prison for sedition. Amnesty International believes his detention and sentence constitutes a disproportionate restriction on his rights to free speech and peaceful assembly, and urges Spain to free him.
