Hundreds marched in San Inazio neighborhood against the harsh penalties imposed to political prisoners Ibai Beobide, Eider Zurriariain, Euri Albisu, Xabier Atristain, Juan María Maizkurrena, Miren Josune Balda and Jose Agustin Camacho. They denounced this persecution as war strategy, i.e. opposed to the peace process unilaterally impelled by the Basque Nationalist Left and ETA.

Update: In Iruñea-Pamplona there was also another demonstration, gathering some 3000 people in demand of social rights and against poverty. 

They spoke against the "government of bankers and capitalists" and in favor of "a government that ends with poverty and not with the poor as they are doing now". One of the main demands present was the right to a decent home because there are many empty homes which are not being rented to the people who need them.
