THOUSANDS PROTESTED AGAINST DISPERSAL POLICY
Thousands took the streets of Portugalete and Santurtzi last Saturday to protest against the criminal dispersal policy which keeps 700 Basque political prisoners spread all around Spain and France and kills prisoners and relatives.
Under heavy rain people marched to show their anger at last events and to make clear their determination to put forward a conflict resolution process despite all provocations from the Spanish and French states.
Igor Angulo's girlfriend, Idoia Muruaga, in a very strong and emotional speech at the end of the demonstration said: "Igor and Roberto's families suffered a lot during the last two weeks, as the Basque Country did. In these hard moments we have showed that they won't get what they want (speaking about Spanish and French governments)because what move us are dignity, love and happiness."
