NEW SPANISH ATTACK
Petrikorena (Batasuna) and Olano (Askatasuna) were put in prison, Barrena (Batasuna's spokeman) and Diez (LAB union's general secretary) were released on 200.000 € and 100.000 € bail last week and Otegi (Batasuna's spokeman) and Alvarez (Batasuna's International Department Officer) will have to appear in court next week after the Spanish Special Court's decision.
This attacks have been largely denounced as a provocation and an obstacle to a conflict resolution conflict in the Basque Country by numerous Basque political parties and unions. In Ireland Gerry Adams (Sinn Féin) opposed measures and supported the Left Abertzale's efforts.
