Riots in Basque capital

Riot police opened fire with rubber pellets on Basque separatist protesters who set rubbish bins ablaze yesterday, after a banned rally in the Basque capital of San Sebastian.

Batasuna leader Arnaldo Otegi said the goal of the rally was to push for Batasuna’s inclusion in proposed all-party talks on the future of the Basque region.

If there is to be any chance for peace in the Basque country then Batasuna must be included. Spain's facist tendency at outlawing a political party goes against everything democracy should be about.

The prospect of peace should not be thrown away.
