Mark Burton shares a recent interview between the magazine 15/15\15 and Catalan Government member of parliament Sergi Saladié. Saladié is part of the independent republican left group CUP (Popular Unity List) responsible for launching debate on degrowth in the Parliament of Catalonia during the Plenary Assembly of 7th September. CUP introduced an interpellation, which is the process for submitting formal questions to the Government for debate, that “set out the need to push for more specific public policies for degrowth as well as a series of proposal the Government could begin to enact.”

Read the full interview in Spanish or translated to English. A summary of the Interpellation in English can be access here, Those who understand Catalan can follow the interpellation process through the Catalonian Parliament website.
