Is the EU Discontent spreading into another regions? A General Strike in the Basque Country (northern Spain) demanding “work, pensions and decent lives” was held today, with mobilisations in all parts of the Basque territory in what union leaders have said is just the start of an “offensive”.

Picket lines have closed several main roads and shopping centres, with a number of arrests and video footage of police attacks on demonstrators. Major mobilisations have been held in the Basque Country’s four main centres: 50,000 in Bilbao, 35,000 in Iruñea (Pamplona), 35,000 in Donostia (San Sebastian) and 25,000 in Vitoria-Gasteiz.
