Basque Country: popular support gathers in just two hours the €15,000 of bail imposed to Aurore Martin

A fund-rising initiative managed to gather in just two hours and only in the towns of Baiona (Bayonne) and Donibane-Garazi (St. Jean Pied-de-Port) the €15,000 demanded by the Spanish political court Audiencia Nacional (of Fascist inception). 450 people donated the money between 9:00 and 11:00 this Saturday, allowing the Northern Basque prisoner of conscience to get out by 17:00. 

Aurore Martin is a Basque politician with French passport who was extradited by France to Spain (polity infamous for its torture and political persecution record) on charges of purely political persecution, causing upheaval in the Northern Basque Country (among other places). She is accused of being an active member of Batasuna, party declared illegal in the South (under Spanish occupation) but fully legal in the North (under French control).
