Ortuzar highlights the PNV's fight against tyrannies in an event interrupted by insults to Aitana Agirre

Last Tuesday, the PNV highlighted its Basque agenda as an added value to those who focus their campaign on the anti-fascist message. However, this Wednesday, at a rally for the European elections, it became clear that they can also move comfortably in the field of stopping extremists. The president of the PNV, Andoni Ortuzar, assured that the Jeltzales have “fought against all tyrannies”, differentiating itself from parties like Bildu by rejecting extremism of any kind.

In this event, Ortuzar recalled how the PNV was key in the fall of Feijóo's investiture, which went hand in hand with Vox. The PNV prefers to talk about Europe and the proposals that can improve the position of Euskadi on the continent. The priority of the PNV is that the national identity and the Basque language are fully recognized in Europe and that Basque interests are well defended in Brussels.

The European proposals of the PNV and its anti-fascist struggle

While some parties focus on Spanish politics and stopping the extreme right, the PNV wants to highlight their trajectory as authentic anti-Franco and anti-fascist fighters. Ortuzar highlighted that the PNV has fought all tyrannies, from Franco, the Nazis, the communist dictatorship and also the dictatorship that ETA wanted to impose on the Basque people..

Aitana Agirre defends the freedom of the PNV in the face of interruptions in Donostia

Furthermore, at the event in Donostia, Aitana Agirre was interrupted by shouts calling the PNV greedy. She took the opportunity to claim that her party defends freedom in the face of these attitudes. Ortuzar narrated the experiences of Juan Mari Agirre, brother of Lehendakari Aguirre and grandfather of Aitana, who fought against the racist wave and defended LGTBIQ+ and women's rights.

Urkullu and Agirregoitia highlight the PNV proposals in Europe and the ecological commitment

Lehendakari Urkullu also participated in the rally, vindicating the proactive attitude of Euskadi in Europe with proposals such as the Share welcome program and participation in Ecofin with the finance ministers. Oihane Agirregoitia, the head of the PNV list, focused on the restoration of ecosystems and the review of contracting rules in the public administration to take into account ecological criteria, in commemoration of Environment Day.

In short, the PNV continues to demonstrate its ability to adapt to current challenges without losing sight of its roots and its commitment to the anti-fascist struggle. The combination of a solid Basque agenda and a clear stance against extremism makes the PNV a relevant and reliable option in the European political landscape..
