Successful ICEC conference 2023 in the European Parliament
'Peaceful Agreements or Bloody Papers?'
Seven short films to explain seven captive nations.
On the 26th of November, in the European Parliament, seven short films produced by ICEC's seven nation members were played and history was explained by those who persue a legitimate democratic fight to make sure their national futures conclude with the victory of Justice and Freedom.
'We wanted to expose how history is not only about old stories but about today's reality and how -in the case of many nations within EU and UK- this current functioning reality has been shaped out by brutal imperialism. A fact from the past which prevents, today, of any chance for our nations to live their existence without the constant violence (social, economic, cultural, ...) endured by the states keeping them captives'
Anna Arqué, ICEC-Catalonia
'This conference was a challenge, not easy to summarize in 10'-15' minutes the historical events and the treaties and laws derived from them that have caused our political subordination. But experts from all nations have achieved it. A united international work, not made before, and that we are sure our international viewers will appreciate.'
Josu Albero, ICEC-Euskal Herria
The conference was held in the European Parliament, the welcoming words were said by Karl Vanlouwe from the N-VA and the moderation was in the professional hands of Wilfried Haensen. The introduction of each film was made by: Anna Arqué (Catalonia), Begotxu Olaizola (Euskal Herria), Robin McAlpine (Scotland), Jill Evans (Wales), Alessandro Galante (Veneto), Andreas Kostner (South Tyrol) and Bernard Dealemans (Flanders).
