Ten members of Itoiz Solidarios hanged in London's giant noria

years ago

25 October 1999,

Ten members of Itoiz Solidarios were hanged in the giant noria of London. Eight out of ten went down, but two others decided to continue hanging and spent the night there. They were accompanied by activists against the works of the Indian Narmada Valley dam. Finally, the police stopped everyone when they came down. It was the first act of the international tour to call for the cessation of the Itoiz reservoir. These activists waiting for trial broke the conditions of parole. They left the Spanish State and in several European cities actions were taken against Itoiz to seek attention and solidarity.


Alberto Barandiaran, members of the Itoiz Elkartasuna group carried out a spectacular activity in London (Euskaldunon Egunkaria, 26 October 1999).
