In a communiqué (PDF) sent by ETA, after yesterday’s detentions, ETA has also asked Spanish Government that “no legislation, Law order, or Consitution should be an obstacle for what the Basque country demands”. “ETA’s will and desire to reach, using dialogue and negotiation, a durable and just peace with Spanish State is total”, and “warns about the intents to mischief the Basque People”. Apàrt from the autodetermination, they are asking for Navarra’s annexation and the cease of the Judges acts against them, calling the measures taken against the ETA members as “exception and repressive” ones.
ETA has so much “will” and “desire” to reach a “durable and just peace” that ysterday 12 people were detained and can be acused of belonging to terrorist band and of catching funds for terrorist bands.
Rajoy has said that “a negotiation with Batasuna is against the EU rules”, as Batasuna is illegalised according to them. “Or is the President taking steps for it to be cleared from the list?”. Outside the Parliament, in the street, some hundreds of people have gone to protest against the President, in a march for the dignity of ETA vitims. They were gicing people white roses except to PSOE MPs that were given them stained with red ink. One has been given to Mr Zapatero, sating: “This is from Miguel Angel Blanco”. Prevost has told about it in his blog.
As a said yesterday, one of the detained is the founder of ETA, Julen Madariaga. If you read Spanish, just read this post by Spanish blogger, Fernando Díaz Villanueva. It’s worth it. Other detained is a journalist from Cadena SER (one of the MSM controlled by leftist holding PRISA), Jean Pierre Harocarene.
About the Catalonian Statute, both Aragón (ruled by PSOE) and the Balearic Islands (ruled by PP) are going to appeal it before the Constitutional Tribunal because of the appropiation Catalonia makes of the Archive of the Crown of Aragón, whose capital was never in Catalonia.
