21 April: mandatory elections

I was recently informed that at an election table I had to replace the 1st of the 2nd vowel as a result of a draw.

I sent the Electoral Board the following statement:

1. I haven't given anyone permission to enter my name for any draw.

2. I am a Basque and I do not recognise any legitimacy to these institutions created for oppression and oppression, which in no way replace my nation or class. They're strangers and bourgeois.

3. I will therefore have nothing to do with all this.

With this brief letter I declare myself inadmissible. After a few days I received a communication that informed me of the denial of my “allegations”. Only in Spanish.

Once again I had to send a brief letter to the Electoral Board to clarify the issue.

I sent the Electoral Board the following statement: I am Basque and I do not recognize any legitimacy to these institutions arising from oppression, because they do not replace my nation or my class at all.

1. I did not make an appeal, but an annotation of what I am going to do (I am not going to participate), that is, a practical exercise of the civil and political rights that I am entitled to, which I did with urbanity, so as not to hinder in time by warning. That, of course, I have done it once, but I will not repeat it.

2. It has also been very significant, not surprising, the language used in the response received: Spanish. I have the same people who do not comply with their legislation, through impressions and threats, to be complied with.

3. If, because I am Basque, I want to be fined and imprisoned, what can I do? Maintain this exercise of input in defence of the civil and political rights of Basque workers, prefect.

Because, in fact, the communication received could read: Law in force, mandatory character, fine of 6 to 24 months, penalty of imprisonment of 3 months to 1 year… It would be better if they applied article 140 of their Electoral Law to those who do not want to participate in their perverse game, leaving it alone.

I know very well how far harassment can go for ideological reasons, as I know that threats and impositions by force are tools to create submissive, obedient, terrified, automotive attachment and society…

On April 21, 2024, I have a better mission.

Think about who has a certain conscience.

I insist, they want our blood, not our language.

The Association of Donors of Navarra (ADONA) makes little use of Euskera and uses it badly, as it is this time.

In the lanterns hang some banderoles in which you can see a phrase in meaningless Basque, in which you put "day of donation" and "give me blood the day".

When Euskera is... [+]
