If someone wants to know how we carry on being activists and assume our activism despite this new sentence * which is purely political, those two quotes should give an answer:
“Fairy Tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” (G. K. Chesterton)
“But one who casts his lot with an advanced party must be prepared to spend a number of years in prison, and he need not grudge it. He feels that even during his imprisonment he remains not quite an inactive part of the stream of human progress which Spreads and strenghtens the ideas which are dear to him” Pyotr Kropotkin, Memoirs of a Revolutionist)
As we previously said in an interview done by Al Jazeera: “They can extend our imprisonment because it’s in their hands, but they won’t be able to stop our people from achieving their right to self-determination nor would they stop the ideas that we cherish so much: independence and socialism. Ideas that are carried out by most of our men and women who work and live in our ancient Basque Country.
There aren’t any invencible dragons! It’s time of cherries!
