25,000 supported the arrested activists in Bilbao

The reaction to the 18/98 macro-indictment arrests was impressive. Just 24 hours after the arrests begun a human wave of solidarity invaded the streets of Bilbao on Sunday. Among those gathered the emotions were high. The arrests shocked the Basque Country. Most of trade unions, political parties and social movements spoke against this dramatic development in the attacks against civil and political rights.

Among the imprisoned are welknown university professors, intellectuals, grassroot activists, trade unionists, journalists...

In the next couple of days more protests have been called all around the Basque Country.
