Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Òmnium opening an office in Brussels?
For three reasons:
- To denounce from Europe’s heart that in the XXI Century there are still civil rights violations in Spain and other western societies.
- To promote culture, particularly internationalising Catalan culture and the Catalan language.
- To being able to raise awareness about our cause without filters and intermediaries, directly in Europe. When Òmnium was shut down in 1962 by the Franco’s regime, we opened a delegation in Paris (France). 50 years later, Òmnium deems indispensable to establish itself in Europe to boost its activity.
If I'm already a member of Òmnium, am I also a member of Òmnium Civil Rights Europe?
No, they are two different legal entities, although both are managed politically from Catalonia. So you also have to become a member of Òmnium Civil Rights Europe by paying a fee. For just €2 a month you can help us to get heard in Europe!
How can I become a member of Òmnium Civil Rights Europe?
Why should I become a member of Òmnium Civil Rights Europe?
By becoming a member, you'll be helping make Europe aware of all of the work that Òmnium has been doing for 60 years.
With an active, peaceful background in defending education, culture, civil rights and real democracy, Òmnium Cultural raises its voice from the heart of the old continent to preserve the foundational values of Europe based on the democratic principles of rights and freedoms.
We would be extremely grateful if you could help us to make this possible by becoming a member of Òmnium Civil Rights Europe.
