Around 25 people participated in a white line picket at the junction of the Falls and Whiterock Roads in Belfast today in support of Basque prisoner Iñaki De Juana, who has been on hunger strike for 47 days.

With the Christmas rush well under way the picketers were able to distribute leaflets to many people explaining Iñaki's case and the reason for his hunger strike.

The car bomb of Dec. 30 in T4 terminal at Barajas Airport, Madrid will definetly push politics to the right here in Spain. The PM, Zapatero has been under pressure to talk tough and end negotiations with Batasuana. The peace process (after nearly 3 years of ceasefire) has been suspended which had just received the endodorsment of the opposition, Partido Popular, before Xmas. So they have bombed their way out of talks and back to ´war´with the Spanish state

By the way Batasuana claim that they did give a warning...

Nevertheless, the two victims were Ecuadorian and were working Spain, sending money home to support their families. It is thought that they were waiting in their car after before meeting new arrivals. The head of one of the victims was found today.

Left wingers should have no illusions in Basque nationalism if it was separatism they reallly wanted they would have looked to Catalonia as an example of what a non-violent political route could acheive. Many of their victims in the past have been left-wing, members of the PSOE. Their use of left-wing posturing (e.g. identifying with the struggles in Chiapas) is window dressing for their own simplistic and narrow nationalist view of the world and of politics. Don´t be fooled
by it...they make precious little attempt to identify with left-wing parties or any trade unions in their own country.

It seems that in their view all Spanish politics, politicians and political parties are bad and their actions are an attempt to push left and right (ie PSOE and PP) together has for the time being been successful. But as to their aims or what they stand for...that remains a mystery to most Spaniards.

I should have qualified the term ¨Basque nationalism´¨ as: ``this strand of Basque Nationalism``, ie HB etc. Not all should be lumped together..

It seems you don't know much about basque left nationalism...or u are not properly informed...

Nobody is happy of the death of the two ecuatorian men. Read or listen the statements...
ETA made a warning an hour before the bomb explode.When the bomb exploded, those two inmigrants were sleeping in the car park.

The family of the two Ecuatorian men are gonna get 240.000 euros plus a pention
