Spanish police dismantles repeater antenna for Basque TV in Pamplona district

The antenna had been installed on January 11th by opposition party Basque Solidarity (EA), which spent 12,000 euros in it, the main reason being that in Navarre there are no Basque-language TV channels because of institutional hostility towards Basque language and identity and that in the past there was no difficulty in watching ETB in the old kingdom.

The reaction by the Spanish Nationalist coalition government was to declare the repeater 'illegal' and to begin the paperwork to destroy it. Today Spanish police has dismantled it.
