As every year, on the eve of the National Day of Catalonia, a popular night’s march with torches switched on its streets.
This act is a tribute to those who, for more than 300 years, fought to defend the rights of Catalans and, on September 11, 1714, abandoned all European nations and after having resisted more than a year, Exerted from France and Spain, they were forced to capitulate to avoid looting the city.
In the fire of the torches, we see the spirit of freedom that we hold on until the final victory, until the full independence of Catalonia!.
On the night of September 10, throughout the country, this event takes place, which, according to the organizers, must serve as a gesture of popular expression, of denunciation against “everything that attacks against national freedoms and democracy” and of a pro-independence claim, yes, without “partisan manipulation or use”.
This is a very significant space for the history of Catalonia, since in this old cemetery of the church of Santa Maria del Mar the fallen ones were buried during the 11th of September 1714. The demographic pressure caused the disappearance of the Going down, following a process similar to the rest of intramural cemeteries begun at the beginning of the 19th century, when the parochial cemeteries were suppressed. Later, it grew up. In 1983 the city council of the city launched a project to remodel the sector by the architect Carme Fiol. It is customary every year, to make the first floral offerings in the Fossar de las Moreras on the night of the 10th of September ..
There is no traitor buried in the moss. until we lose our flags, it will be the urn of honor “
