Esquerra’s main ideological foundations
Esquerra Republicana, founded in 1931, is the oldest political organization in Catalonia still active and its main objective is the achievement of a fairer and more solidarity society, without inequalities between people and territories and considers that the way to do this is to achieve the independence of Catalonia.
Esquerra Republicana proposes building an independent state for the Catalan nation as part of Europe and achieving a fairer and more supportive society without inequalities between people and territories.
Esquerra Republicana defines itself as a non-dogmatic republican, democratic and left-wing party focused on the defence of pluralism, human rights and the rights of people and the environment.
Esquerra Republicana is the principal party on the national left wing and has never depended on political forces from outside the Catalan nation.
