We would do the same again, exactly the same. We do not regret anything. We are democrats. And the Democrats truly listen to people and also obey the mandates of the people who vote.

Artur Mas quotes

The speed in which Spain's constitutional court organised the meeting broke the sound barrier – they didn't even wait a day to announce an initial decision.

In a democracy, one resolves the challenges ahead with more democracy. Nobody can be scared by others expressing their opinions by casting a ballot. This is our compromise, what we were given the task to do by a great majority of Catalans with their vote in the last autonomous election. Catalonia wants to speak, to be heard, to vote.

We want to vote, we want to decide and now we have the framework and the right time. I am going to take advantage of this moment to address all Spanish people: the fraternal ties that bind us to the rest of the people of Spain are intense and deep. We have a great history in common, a history that will continue with the will to build together the Europe of the 21st century.

The Catalan way is based on democracy and on the right to vote. In Scotland, they've had a vote and as they've done so, I insist that's the right way. And in this sense, the Catalan process is reinforced.

I seize the opportunity to remind the institution of the (Spanish) state that they still have time to hear the peaceful and democratic clamour of the Catalan people.

There is no proposal from the state's side to resolve this political conflict, other than reminding us that, according to them, the consultation is illegal. But I reiterate that there is the possibility to turn it into a legal consultation, if there is sufficient political will to do so. But today on this issue, there has been no agreement.

It is not a final full stop, it's a new paragraph and from here, from this painful.

The time will come for the Spanish institutions to negotiate with the Catalan institutions to take this referendum into account within existing legislation. The possibilities are numerous.

I am confident that I can rely on you to encourage the peaceful, democratic, transparent and European process to which I and a vast majority of the Catalan people are fully committed.

There will come a time for the institutions of the state of Spain to negotiate with Catalan institutions how to carry out this referendum within the existing legal frameworks, which are many.

Of all the territories in Spain, more than 30 years after the establishment of democracy, Catalonia contributes the most to Spain's GDP and to economic growth, and yet it is the territory with the least public spending in Spain.

The people of Catalonia should be consulted next year on their political future.

Catalonia is one of the oldest nations of Europe and of the world. We are trying to build up a broad majority – a very big and broad majority next Sunday – to build the future of our nation, the future of 7.5 million people of this country.

It is intolerable that in a country like ours, they don't allow us to do our job. We represent the people and we have to arrive in this way while they use violence in the streets against members of parliament.

I think Catalonia must change strategy and really push for the right to decide its future.
