Live vigil tonight at Bilbao (and Pamplona) for the right of Basques to vote freely this year in local and provincial elections. Banished coalition Bildu is holding this vigil tonight while awaiting for the decision of the Spanish Constitutional Court upon appeal.
|Previously thousands demonstrated through the city|
Bildu is an ample coalition made up of Eusko Alkartasuna (Basque Solidarity, a long-lived social-democratic party), Alternatiba (a break-away group from the previous) and independents. All candidates have signed a declaration rejecting ETA's violence yet all lists have been forbidden because the Spanish judges have decided that some of their members were tainted, maybe because they took part in some political activity in the 1980s or 90s.
