On Saturday 22nd February around 20 people demonstrated in London outside Belmarsh prison in solidarity with Iñigo Makazaga a Basque political prisoner, and demanding the repatriation of all Basque prisoners [Report and photo]. The group later decided to head for the Spanish Embassy to protest against the continuous repression in the Basque Country by the Spanish government, which has resulted in the recent closure of the only paper published entirely in Basque language Euskaldunon Egunkaria and the arrest of 10 of its staff accused of "supporting an armed group".
