The Basque's Will

This note comes to us thanks to EITb:


Rally in Bilbao

"The Basques's will can not be falsified"- PNV, EA, EB


The three parties in the Basque Government appealed the Basque citizens to attend a rally on Saturday in Bilbao to defend the Basque institutions.

The three Basque parties in the Basque Government PNV, EA and EB Berdeak appealed to the Basques to attend a rally on Saturday in the Basque city of Bilbao to protest against the sentence in the "Atutxa case", to support the Basque institutions and to say clearly that the Basques' will can not be falsified by anybody."

"The political will can not change as it pleases to those who think they are the only interpreters of the law, twisting it at their own will with total impunity backed by the state and near the edge of the democratic control", Iñigo Urkullu, leader of the Basque party PNV, said in a press conference together with the leaders of EA and EB.

EA leader Unai Ziarreta denounced the sentence in the "Atutxa case" means a "direct attack" to the Basque parliament and the separation of powers and added the court ruling reveals the necessity of a Basque judicial system "free of ties", as well as the necessity to "activate politics and dialogue without exclusions".

Javier Madrazo, leader of the communist party EB, said the sentence was a "true blow to the institutions" and asked the parties PP, PSE-EE, EHAK and Aralar to think why they are not supporting the rally.
