This document was condensed into the Galician Nationalist Bloc's ideological, political and organisational principles. The structure and even the contents of the foundational manifest tell of the nature of the constituent process which results in the convergence of different political projects.
The manifest is made up by four parts, the first contextualizes the unitary alternative as a necessary and essential tool to achieve nationalist objectives; the second part strengthens the ideological-political principles that define the organization's main foundations, not only operationally but strategically, together with the founders' common principles, which at the same time, make up the organizational unit's sustenance; the third sets out BNG's immediate political objectives starting from the rejection of political reform started in 1975 and principally the Constitution and the autonomous framework. The last part of this document determines the basic organisational principles that will govern BNG's operation, highlighting its assembly-type character and political pluralism.

The document summarizes in 11 points the ideological and political principles of the GSP, a political organisation that wrestles to covert Galicia into a socialist society, that is, to build a socialist society for all Galician people. We envisage a socialist society as a society without classes, totally democratic, where the real property of productive resources is the people’s creation and more of a heritage, and where political power expresses the majority’s conscious wish and guarantees freedom for everybody. In this paper highlights that Galician people have the right to political self-government, and later, to create the constituent power to formalise political institutions suitable for its self-government.

Aragonese regionalism must speed up and organise itself to achieve autonomy for Aragon, through need and through right, because of its personality. The Commonwealth of Aragon has to be like the great Council of the Kingdom ( the Aragon government in the Middle Ages), against a system of centralised Provincial Councils that limit themselves to obeying Madrid and spend their budget according to the Government’s directives, which transmits its adverse effects. Complete administration of the country is sought, overcoming the inexcusable links with the Government. One attempts to attend to the proper needs of Aragon, economic, public works, territorial organisation (the regions), that will overcome limited provincial municipalism, that will update and revitalise Aragonese regional rights, that will make Zaragoza its capital and maintain cordial but minimum relations with the Spanish government. It is in favour of friendly relations with other people, especially Cataluña and Levante, but without being anybody's colony or appendix. It restores Aragon’s proper personality and its wish to defend its interests against third parties.

It adds ten rules to the Aragonese Regionalist Action programme bringing together the aforementioned and other aspects such as the need to have their own Revenue department at every administrative level, a marked agrarian and industrial policy, the creation of an Aragonese Higher Education Centre and taking up government competencies.

Nacionalist Assembly of Lugo Manifesto


The Manifesto takes the form of a programmatic political document whose subject is the Galician people, addressed to the Head of the Spanish State. The document’s central demand is political, economic and financial autonomy for Galicia within the framework of a federation of Iberian nations, including Portugal.

The Manifesto is divided into seven sections structuring the political and institutional framework of the federal state of Galicia, administrative reform, the powers of the Galician government, the legal framework, the economy and cultural, artistic and land management matters. The text recognises the legal personality of parishes, which are endowed with a management and government structure; establishes an electoral system based on proportional representation; demands co-official status for Galician and Castilian Spanish; recognises gender equality; dissolves the provincial councils; establishes an autonomous tax system; delegates certain powers, such as customs and excise,  to the Federal State on the basis of a bilateral agreement; and highlights the need to draft a law to harmonise buildings with traditional local styles of construction.
