For a free Basque country
The Occitan Nation Party is delighted about the wise decision of the clandestine independentist Basque organization, ETA “Euskadi Ta Askatasuna, Basque country and its freedom” "to give up the use of violence for good". Henceforward, the fight for the independence of the Basque nation will be through democratic means as it has been the case for Catalonia for a long time. Following the democracy road, when possible, will not necessarily enable the Basque to become independent quickly but it is better than an armed struggle and the casualties and suffering it entails. Let us hope that Spain will rapidly seize the opportunity to restore civil peace and to negotiate with the Basque country on its national demands without deliberately seeking revenge.
