Arrests of Basque union members for 'throwing paint'

The levels of repression against the working class in the Basque Country have reached yet another level of abuse and arbitrariness: two members of the union LAB (Nationalist Workers' Committees) have been arrested in Navarre for allegedly throwing paint against the capitalist syndicate CEN (Confederation of Businesspeople of Navarre). 

Yesterday was Berta García and today Oskar Cayon who have been arrested for a misdemeanor in a clear attempt to scare them and other revolutionary militants.

Let's not forget that a striking worker Xuban Nafarrete was beaten to near death by masked policemen before a commercial center of Vitoria-Gasteiz and, the following day, members of the same police corps gratuitously attacked a peaceful protest in solidarity with him. 

Not satisfied with this violence the Spanish bourgeois dictatorship continues to attack working class activists in a useless attempt to intimidate.
