Numbers

On the 2023 portal, the 2022 numbers gain a special prominence, as with the change of year we always try to zero the counter. In the age of liquid realities, numbers also disappear from our additivity, often at tremendous speed, and even transform. Surely a simple attempt I would like to share with you the numbers I have saved. Unfortunately, in the fight against oblivion, I feel that the present always wins.

A few days ago, the Supreme Court suspended the investigation into the murder of 23 people, so there will be no trial. But maybe it's not the actual death toll, and actually, on the edge of shame, at least 72 people were killed on the Melilla barrier. The unnamed refugees who remained there have no right to numbers, let alone justice.

In November, the Spanish Courts approved the budgets of the Kingdom of Spain with 187 votes. In any budget the numbers are very significant, but some expenses are hidden. For example, the amount that the army, the police and the Civil Guard will receive next year is very limited.

According to the director of the Civil Guard, with this money they will have the largest number of agents in history: 82,692 guards, not a slow figure

Shortly before the budget was approved, the NATO leaders promised Spain that 2% of GDP had to be reserved for the war. The Spanish Government, like the Chinese divers, has exceeded this percentage, and will finally spend 2.7% of GDP next year to feed state forces. The capture of the Ministry of Defence will therefore increase by 26% and in Spain will spend EUR 75.5 million a day on weapons and armed forces.

According to Margarita Robles, “Investing in defense is investing in peace.” And with these arguments, 20 members of Hego Euskal Herria of the Madrid Congress voted in favour of the budgets. Members from PNV, EH Bildu, PSE and UP. In the following days, according to statements by the director of the Civil Guard, with this money the armed institute will have the largest number of agents in history: 82,692 guards, it is not a slow figure.

B. Brecht reinvents: “There are many ways to kill. They can put a knife in your stomach, take out your bread, or leave a disease uncured, enter a precarious home, push suicide. They can torture you to death with work, lead you to war, etc. Few of these things are prohibited in our country.”

Large casserole

Unconsciously, the summer solstice comes back. The Sun has reached its peak and heats our hull very well. In many places the rite of fire is celebrated and the Basques also have an ancestral tradition. In the past, the stake of San Juan was made at the ends of the mountains, but... [+]

Hot potato that Urkullu gives to Pradales

The idea of this article emerged when on 24 November lehendakari Urkullu leaked that he would not be a candidate and, consequently, it was found that he would go after twelve years in office without significant gestures with the victims of the State.

However, in order not to be... [+]

Not suitable

In a one-hour commute to the workplace, I am accompanied by the car radio. On yesterday's journey, I had the opportunity to enjoy a short story program, as the last port of the road, full of curves, began in Karrantza. Short legends, yes, of few words, but stories of great... [+]


Asturias-Veleia, 18 years ago

In June 18 years ago we started to get to know the paintings of Iruña Veleia. Good news for the Basques.

But the current situation is not so satisfactory. On the one hand, the Provincial Council of Álava (DFA) says that all graphites are false, and that those who think... [+]


They're also our children.

Parents' mornings are crazy! Wake up the children, give a breakfast, dress up... to get to school on time. These are our day-to-day concerns as parents. At 3,500 kilometres from our country, the responsibilities of the Palestinian parents are very different: whether they are... [+]
