The Estatpropi (Own State) team is pleased to welcome you to the new www.estatpropi.cat portal presentation in Valencia on February 14.
The Estatpropi team will present the new www.estatpropi.cat portal in Valencia on February 14. The presentation of the new “Join the Map for the Catalan Countries’ Own State” campaign website will be hosted by Toni Gisbert of Acció Cultural del País Valencià (Cultural Action of Valencia - www.acpv.cat) and Xavi Sarrià of Obrint Pas(www.obrintpas.com). On the same day, Estatpropi will also be present at the “Independentist Activism on the Net” round-table organised by Òmnium Cultural in Barcelona.
Next Thursday, February 14, at 7.30 pm, the Estatpropi team will present the “Join the Map for the Catalan Countries’ Own State” campaign portal at the Octubre Centre de Cultura Contemporanea (Octubre Contemporary Culture Centre) in Valencia. The public presentation of the new portal will help to explain the varied potential of the website which is to become the reference point for geopositioning via the web 2.0. The presentation will be hosted by Toni Gisbert of Acció Cultural del País Valencià (Cultural Action of Valencia) and Xavi Sarrià (the singer of rock and ska band Obrint Pas), who will analyse the situation in Valencia and assess the impact of the campaign there and in the rest of the Catalan Countries.
The new website is to be presented at a gratifying time for the “Join the Map for the Catalan Countries’ Own State”, which has reached a membership of 17,000 and reached 63% of the towns in the Catalan Countries. The new portal represents one step beyond, of crucial importance, on the campaign’s path. The most obvious change is the design and usability of the site. Furthermore, the campaign logo has also changed, and is now a four-pronged pitchfork. Just surfing the site reveals the many improvements offered, going from the technical to the conceptual.
From the functional point of view, the portal includes improvements to the membership process and map navigation. Likewise, a new area has been added for buttons, banners and customisable widgets so any blogger or webmaster can add the information that best suits their site: counters, patriotic phrases, Estatpropi news, etc.) Moreover, a personalised fund-raising campaign for Estatpropi is to be started in both conventional and digital media, as well as a new novelty-packed statistics section.
Finally, the website is to open its doors to cooperation with other collectives, such as the Federation of Organisations for the Catalan Language (FOLC).
On the same day, but at 7.00 pm in Barcelona, the Estatpropi team will also be present at the “Independentist Activism on the Net” round-table held by Òmnium Cultural, as one in a series of “Thursdays at the Òmnium” salons. As well as Estatpropi, this event will also be attended by other emblematic Catalan independentist collectives on the web, including the Xarxa de Blocaires Sobiranistes (www.xbs.cat), www.llibertat.cat, www.freecatalonia.com, www.racocatala.cat and www.directe.cat, who will also be presenting their own projects.
