Internationalist Group Euskal Herriaren independentzia eskubidearen alde agertu da

['The Internationalist', 2011ko uztaila]

"Even the democratic demands raised by various left groups are extremely limited. There is little mention of the reactionary king Juan Carlos, protector of the army, Guardia Civil and the rest of the repressive apparatus of the capitalist state. The camp at the Plaza del Sol has called for down with the monarchy, but to replace it with what? While seeking to mobilize the working class, poor and hard-hit petty bourgeois to fight the capitalist assault, a revolutionary nucleus would fight to bring down the monarchy, inherited from the Franco regime, in the struggle for a workers republic. It would defend the right of self-determination and for independence for Euskadi, the Basque country divided and oppressed by Spain and France, for returning the enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla to Morocco. It would call to mobilize the unions against police attacks on the anti-austerity protests, such as the brutal assault by the Mossos d’Esquadra against demonstrators on May 27, and for the formation of self-defense squads. This would, of course, clash with organizers’ policy of “non-violence” (toward the state). Where are the demands in defense of immigrants? Trotskyists call for the basic democratic demand for full citizenship rights for all immigrants, with or without papers, as was granted by the Paris Commune of 1871 and the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917."
