Zapatero calls upon Bildu to reject ETA violence

Tue 19th Apr 2011

Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero has demanded that the Basque separatist group, Bildu, distances itself from the armed nationalist organization ETA, officials said.

The Spanish Prime Minister insisted that four months was insufficient time for the public to be convinced that the group has no connections with ETA, following four decades of Basque terrorism, El Pais reported.

The PM commented how Bildu had "advanced, but they must take additional steps, more decisive and firm, to reject, forget and make a definitive break with violence."

Zapatero was speaking at a rally by his Socialist party over the weekend, and called for ETA to end its campaign of violence without conditions or negotiations.

Bildu was formed earlier this month by former members of the outlawed Batasuna party with two legitimate radical left parties Eusko Alkartasuna and Alternatiba. The newly formed nationalist group will announce the 300 candidates running for positions in the May 22 municipal elections on Monday in the Basque Country and Navarre.

Bildu's secretary-general, has affirmed that all the candidates have already complied with the law and have renounced ETA violence.
