Bibao again overwhelmed by huge demonstration for political prisoners

Images are worth more than words:

Basque prisoners and exiles to the Basque Country

With all their rights, Basque prisoners to the Basque Country

Two major streets of Bilbao (Autonomia and Hurtado Ametzaga) were again crowded with an indefinite number of demonstrators (tens of thousands at the least, no figures provided yet anywhere). 

People chanted "Basque prisoners to the Basque Country!", "Basque prisoners back home!", "no peace without amnesty!", "refugees must live in the Basque Country!", "Independence!", "Go Basque youth!", etc.

All Basque nationalist parties except the right wing Basque Nationalist Party, as well as the two major labor unions and other organisms were present.
