Update On Raid In Iparralde

Just a couple of days ago the mean stream media (news corporations key to the propaganda effort by Spain against the Basque people) was calling those arrested in the pre-dawn raids by French police by labels like "militants", "separatists", "leftists" and such.

Now that they are free without charges, they are just "people".

All 14 arrested in French Basque sweep freed without charge

Sat Sep 27, 2:49 AM ET

French authorities said Saturday 14 people arrested this week in a major operation within the Basque separatist movement in southwest France have been released after no charges were brought against them.

The 14 people -- not 12 as originally reported -- were released from custody "in stages starting Friday night into the early hours of Saturday," said the Paris prosecutor's office, which is in charge of anti-terrorism throughout France.

Seven of the arrests were in connection with the 2006 attack on the hotel in the southern French town of Bidarry and five others were part of a probe into the financing of Basque groups, a legal source in Paris had said on Wednesday.
The detainees had been held since Wednesday in several cities in the southwestern Basque region such as Bayonne and Pau and included two senior figures of the separatist political party Batasuna.
