A New Euskal Herria

  1. In my opinion, the people of Nafarroa should vote on whether or not they want to join the rest of the autonomous Basque provinces and become their own country. Out of all the Basque regoins in Spain, Nafarroa is the one being drained of it's culture the most, mostly due to the Spanish.
    I just don't understand why Spain insists on keeping the Basque regions and refuses them to form their own country. It's so obvious they want to be free, especially the younger generation. They should just let them become independent and help them form their own government instead of going through all these messy politics.
