Esquerra’s main ideological foundations
Founded in 1931, Esquerra Republicana is the oldest active political organization in Catalonia and its main objective is the achievement of a fairer and more solidary society, free of inequalities between people and territories. We consider that the best way to achieve this is by building an independent state for the Catalan nation as part of Europe.
Esquerra Republicana is a non-dogmatic republican, democratic left-wing party centred on the defence of pluralism, human rights and the rights of people and the environment.
Esquerra Republicana is Catalonia’s major left-wing national party and has always been independent of political forces from outside the Catalan nation.
