The essence of the Basque Country and the paper state

Revisionism is fashionable. This devastating trend has been unleashed by some party organizations that pierce the pillars of this house of all as a moth. Proposing, for example, an ergonomic re-reading of recent history, and suggesting to the blue kaiku taumaturgic magical properties in the rebellion against the harsh Franco regime. Or in another environment, disregarding the fundamental foundations of the Basque nation and formulating a naive and incredible promise of the Basque state on paper, oriented towards what and to “live better”.

The ridiculous/unfortunate stories of the pre-election have dominated the public story, and the Basque storyteller does not know what to think about politicians and announcers who have become fantastic storytellers.

We are told that the progressive coalition in the Spanish Government is a window, and that the representatives of the Basque parties who come to it, both from one party and another, are repeatedly linked in agreements and votes with the members of the Spanish Government and ensure their continuity. In the meantime, however, the same governments and the same states are linking in eternal ice the basic laws and agreements of autonomy agreed half a century ago. Likewise, it freezes the free spirits and democratic liberating processes of its Catalan brothers of the police, judges and penalties. The same judges also freeze our Basque, while the language of the old Castile obliges us in our land in this twenty-first century. More terrible anachronics than the imposition here and now in Spanish!

In the public report there is a predominance of ridiculous/regrettable accounts of the pre-election, and the Basque politician does not know what to think

What advantages does this greeting window offer? When we ask this, our storytellers show us the ghost at the tip of the right, like in puppet theater. What do we have to think, then, that we Basques have to keep to the servitude of always complying with these rulers of that Spanish state, because otherwise, the deputy rulers are even worse? We have nothing easy!

The Basques are not for stories, and we have to look beyond elections. We must ensure that Euskal Herria is a full and organized democratic nation, that our politicians have to look closely in recent times, even if they have forgotten it and rejected it. We need active internationalization throughout the Basque Country, wide, long and deep. Because Basque nationality affects the core of our identity. And Basque internationalization is in a serious crisis. Because in the crisis, because of external factors, the two dominant states have accelerated the assimilation process, but also because of internal factors, because many Basque citizens actively or passively acknowledge this assimilation, exchanging their own identity. Moreover, because there is a progressive integration of parties and ex-nationalist organisations in the institutions and dynamics of the Spanish and French states. They also show the “theoretical justification” and legitimization of this conduct.

The stories and the subordinate tactical paths, the blind, the Basques have to awaken a renewed national work throughout the Basque Country. If what we have done so far has brought us to this situation, it is clear that we need new proposals, from theory to practice. The Basque nation needs a large-scale reorganization as a whole. List our forces, connect all those working for Basque internationalisation and cooperate. Complete the polysystem of Basque culture in all scientific, artistic, labor and administrative disciplines, with Basque as the central axis. We have started a new Basque internationalization, open and in the process of independent work.

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... [+]
