Thousands gathered yesterday in Santurtzi and Portugalete to say good bye to Igor Angulo and Roberto Saiz, Basque political prisoners killed this week in Spanish jails. Both towns are just a few miles one from the other.

Hundreds of autonomous Basque police closed all routes to these towns in an attempt to stop thousands of people to gather and pay tribute to Igor and Roberto. The police charged brutally against the crowd and dozens were brought to hospitals.

Witnesses pointed that those scenes were even worst than the Franco's times. Batasuna asked the Basque Home Affairs minister to resign.

It remembered me when I went some 32 years ago to my town church when a school companion died in Donostia under the Civil Guard bullets.

We've gone back.
