  Political protest in Plentzia - in English and Bas
by timtregenza

Favorite thing: The Basque Country is a politicised area. This does not mean it is dangerous, it simply means that there is an awareness of the challenges of competiting nationalisms.

In the photo, the Basque slogan says "Basque prisoners to the Basque Country", about a controversial Spanish government policy to send "political" prisoners outside the Basque country.

The lower slogan is to remind tourists of their geography.
