Beyond Catalonia, CUP is most well-known as the anti-capitalist party demanding Catalonia ruptures from Spain, frequently holding the balance of power in the Catalan parliament. However, CUP's municipalist core is less discussed abroad.
Forming 1987, CUP drew together anti-Francoist energies forming around participative democracy, feminism, anti-authoritarianism & liberation. It didn't stand in Catalan elections until 2012: these decisions were made by consensus through its confederal system.
