La 'Tregua' en la Prensa Estadounidense

Por Sin Pancarta - 13 de Junio, 2006, 5:00, Categoría: Prensa Internacional

No existía en aquel momento una percepción clara del fenómeno terrorista español en Estados Unidos, tal vez con la excepción del diario de Wall Street. De los tres grandes diarios norteamericanos el Post concede seis líneas dentro de un artículo, el Journal le dedica tres líneas (aunque al día siguiente incluiría un editorial en al edición europea) y el Times mejor no hubiese escrito nada porque para referirse a guerrillas, rebeldes vascos y otras majaderías preferimos el silencio. Fue a partir de la ruptura de esta tregua que implicaría la inclusión de ETA como banda terrorista en la lista del Departamento de Estado y sobre todo con la llegada del George W. Bush a la Casa Blanca cuando esta lamentable situación se modificaría definitivamente.

The Basque separatist group ETA Wednesday night announced an unlimited truce in its armed struggle for independence against the Spanish government in order to "better contribute towards the dialogue" currently taking place, according to a communique sent to the Euskadi Informacion daily.

Basque Separatists Announce Cease-Fire

MADRID - After a bloody 30-year fight for an independent homeland in northern Spain, the armed Basque separatist group ETA has announced a cease-fire, a newspaper reported yesterday. ETA's four-page statement announcing the indefinite truce was sent to the radical Basque daily Euskadi Informacion, the state-run news agency EFE reported.

The group set no conditions on the cease-fire, which it said is to begin Friday.

The report comes days after Basque nationalists urged the militant group to renounce bloodshed to help foster a political solution to the conflict, in which 800 people have died.

Basque Rebels Declare an Indefinite Truce

  

The armed Basque separatist group E.T.A., which has fought a 30-year guerrilla war for an independent homeland in northern Spain, declared today a ''total and indefinite'' cease-fire.

E.T.A. announced an end to its attacks in a four-page statement published in the radical Basque daily Euskadi Informacion, the state-run news agency EFE reported. The group set no conditions on the cease-fire, which it said will begin on Friday.

The report comes days after Basque nationalists urged the militant group to renounce bloodshed to help foster a political solution to the conflict, which has cost 800 lives.

Pressure on E.T.A. to declare a unilateral cease-fire had mounted since Saturday, when Basque nationalists and other political groups -- including the E.T.A.-allied political party Herri Batasuna -- issued an appeal for peace talks and a permanent end to the violence.

Their statement was signed by 23 political parties, labor unions and grassroots groups. The forum was boycotted by Spain's two most powerful parties, the governing Popular Party and the opposition Socialists.

The Spanish Government will deliver its response on Thursday, the Interior Ministry said.

E.T.A. declared a truce in 1996, which lasted one week. That cease-fire ended with a series of bomb attacks on tourist resorts when the Government refused to negotiate unless E.T.A. formally repudiated violence.
