Thousands of Basque youths reached out to the capital of the European Union to demonstrate in demand of sovereignty and civil rights.
As you can see in the photo above, the central slogan of the demo was "Freedom for the Basque Country - Civil and Political Rights for the Basque Youth".
This was surely the only banner in English, others read in Basque and French: "Independence", "Committee 'Liberez-les' of Support for Political Refugees and Prisoners" and "International Solidarity - Without Rest Until Victory".
The demonstration had been called by GaztEHerria (Young People, with a letter play of EH meaning Euskal Herria: the Basque Nation or People), a plural platform of Basque organizations.
Additionally, the march had support of other European nationalist movements such as Sinn Féin and the Flemish Nieuw-Vlaamse Alliantie.
The buses departing from the Basque Country suffered from police hostigation and delaying tactics but all arrived to Brussels in time for the demo to take place.
