Continuing on the big news of ETA ending violence, here are two more perspectives that might be of interest.
First, Mark Bieter, who, by the way, has a wonderful blog that you should be reading if you aren’t already, has an interview he did with Jaime Otamendi, who is “a long-time ETB journalist and host, about ETA and when one of his friends was killed by ETA members as the two were having coffee in a bar in Tolosa. Pretty amazing guy.”
Second, if you are in Reno, you might want to check out this discussion on Wednesday night. Experts from the University of Nevada’s Basque Studies Center — Joseba Zulaika, Imanol Murua and Xabier Irujo — will be discussing ideas about Basque identity and nationhood. You can be sure that how the end of ETA changes the future of Euskadi will be a central part of the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. Here are some details:
Wednesday, November 16· 7:00pm – 9:00pm
University of Nevada, Reno
Knowledge Center, Wells Fargo Auditorium
