The campaign "We defend the obvious»Is part of the idea that all people have basic rights recognized by law that define democratic society, and therefore, they must be respected and guaranteed. These rights are included in different declarative and legal texts, such as the Declaration of Human Rights, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, the Spanish Constitution and the Statute. Furthermore, Catalonia has been endowed with different specific laws, such as Law 5 / 2008 of women's rights to live free from sexist violence, Law 11 / 2014 for the protection of people's rights LGBTI, la law 17/2015 Effective equality between women and men.
