About This Download
In this case, we argue that the invocation of Article 155 has eliminated decentralization of power and violated the sanctity of elections. The case argues for giving Catalonia her independence back within the context of the Spanish state.
To win this, you do have to win the Topicality press on the word “independent,” and I really can’t help you prep there too much—that comes down to mid-round persuasiveness and understanding how to articulate theory about language. But once you win that, you can run all of the generic argumentation about why decentralization of power is good, including federalism argumentation. That’s nice, because we love that literature over here in America. The round is about decentralization=> resolution upholds decentralization=> I win.
When writing your scripts, develop a compelling narrative. Feel free to shuffle evidence between the first speech and A/T; a lot of it is versatile.
