Humor: European Court illegalizes historical Basque antifascist party

Tasio at Gara:

Strasbourg Court ratifies the illegalization of ANV [→ background]

Judge: And we have done it without violating your right to freedom of speech, nor your freedom of assembly, nor that of free association.

Judge: Only that you cannot speak, nor assemble nor associate. 

Citizen: I see.

Judge: These are the unweldable¹ mysteries of our democracy.

¹ Word play between Spanish insondable (unfathomable, from sondar: to sound [the depths]) and insoldable (unweldable, that cannot be welded, from soldar: to weld).
