Ballots of Dignity

Pro-independence Basque citizens show ballots of the outlawed Basque party, Democracy 3 Million or D3M, in Bilbao. The Spanish government has ordered the General Attorney to outlaw D3M, in order to ensure that the ruling party's candidate, Patxi Lopez, stands a chance to win the Basque Autonomous Community's presidency. Since there is no separation of powers in Spain like in other advanced and democratic states, judge Baltasar proceeded to obey and resorted to an Apartheid like law that enables Spain to outlaw any Basque political party they want, which is why no one can understand how is it that Nadine Gordimer decided to become such an ardent opponent of the Basque right to self determination after everything she allegedly did in her own country, South Africa.
