The High Court of Justice of Catalonia does not allow Catalan-language advocacy organisations to be a party in the case against the court decision ordering that 25% of classes in Catalan schools be taught in Spanish


Several organisations that advocate for the Catalan language, namely Òmnium, Plataforma per la Llengua, USTEC, Associació d’Estudiants en Defensa de l’Educació Pública and Fundació Catalunya Fons, had petitioned to be a party in the case following the Court’s May decision ordering the mandatory enforcement of the ruling requiring schools to teach 25% of classes in Spanish. The High Court of Justice of Catalonia denies their petition while at the same time allowing the organisation Hablamos Español to be a party in the case. In November, the Court upholds its decision, with two judges dissenting.
