Basque Country: tens of thousands demonstrate for the rights of prisoners

Tens of thousands demonstrated today in Bilbao in spite of the heavy rain in rejection of the "Parot doctrine" that keeps political prisoners in jail almost forever (even if the Spanish constitution establishes that 30 years is the maximum penalty) even in cases of severe illness.

Deactivate the exception measures. It is time of solution.
Meanwhile the Spanish single twin party (PP-PSOE) insists in not applying any sort of collective measure to Basque prisoners, not even any kind of measure at all.

The Basque Political Prisoners Network elected six representatives a few days ago for dialogue with the Spanish authorities.
