In a historic declaration, left-independentist alliance EH Bildu has acknowledged the suffering caused by the actions of its former armed wing, Basque Homeland and Freedom (ETA), reports Dick Nichols.

Basque Homeland and Freedom (ETA), which waged a decades-long military campaign for Basque independence, released its “Statement to the Basque Country: declaration on harm caused” on April 8. The statement is an apology for the suffering arising from more than 40 years of violent operations that ended in a permanent ceasefire in 2011.
