Spain: Basque throws support behind Catalan referendum in Bilbao

Hundreds of people marched through the streets of Bilbao city in the Basque Country, Saturday, in support of Sunday's Catalan independence referendum. Some of the demonstrators also voiced their desire to follow Catalan's path to independence from Spain. General Coordinator of the Basque pro-independence coalition Euskal Herria Bildu (EH Bildu), Arnaldo Otegui, who attended the march, expressed... Еще that the demonstrators came «to support the Catalan people and their institutions, to say that tomorrow there is a referendum on the self-determination of Catalonia, with which we agree.» He went on to stress that while «it is good that there is solidarity» with the Catalan people, the Basque Country «also has to start its own path towards the recovery of sovereignty.» The Spanish government has deemed the Catalan referendum «illegal.» The Constitutional Court suspended the Catalan referendum law, following an appeal from the Spanish government. It will be suspended until the court reaches a decision.
