THOUSANDS OF BASQUES TOOK PART IN THE ACTION AND STRIKE DAY
Thousands of people took part in hundreds of protests all along the Basque Country yesterday. The Left Abertzale called an action and strike day in protest for the two Basque Political Prisoners killed last week in Spanish gaols. Political status, repatriation and democratic resolution to the conflic were the main reasons which brought these people to the streets. Lots of the protesters were attacked by the police.
The Spanish Special Court Prosecutor called Batasuna, Askatasuna and LAB spokemen to appear in court next week and is asking for their incarceration as organisers of yesterday's action day.
Four bombs were set by ETA in four different places along the border between the Basque Country and Spain.
