ETA announce permanent ceasefire – podcast tonight

ETA have announced a permanent ceasefire in a video emitted on Basque Television – “The aim of this decision is to promote a democratic process in the Basque Country… The end of the conflict is possible here and now. This is the desire and wishes of ETA.”

My first reaction is one of amazement. I’ll be researching the story more today and Marina and I will report on it tonight in a podcast. Certainly this must be the most historic moment in Spain since the end of the civil war.
