The mayor of Vitoria, Gorka Urtaran, has promised that he will destroy the amazing revolutionary Errekaleor project and evict the occupiers, including many children and a 3 month old baby, whom the PNV politician defined as “anti-system”

The biggest State robbery since Franco Dictatorship
..In another outrageous ruling he Spanish Supreme Court has ratified the closure and seizure of 107 herriko (village) taverns in Euskadi (Basque Country). The pubs were accused of secretly supporting the Basque resistance 14 years ago. Although ETA has unilaterally ceased fire and disbanded since 2006 the repression by the Spanish State continues against any person or group accused of giving even verbal support to Basque Nationalism, with no political amnesty, continuing isolation of prisoners, torture and new arrests. If the Courts actually carry out the seizure it may provoke a new uprising in Euskadi. e#HerrikoakLibre
