Bus burning in San Sebastian


Several years ago I wrote an article about San Sebastian (posted in the forum), contrasting the beauty of this outstandingly beautiful coastal city with the urban violence known as Kale Borroka, where young ETA sympathisers with extremist beliefs (or impressionable personalities), smash and burn in the name of a free Basque Country.

People have been saying for some time that the ETA peace process is falling apart, and today’s events in San Sebastian – molotov coctails hurled at a Naval headquaters, a bank, and inside a bus – won’t do much to convince people otherwise.
