Recently, Eta was blamed for bombing a car in Durango, Spain. Eta is a group in the Basque region of Spain that wants freedom to govern their own country. The ETA has been setting off bombs in Spain and France for decades. After every bomb they set off the ETA proves that they did it so that people would be scared of them, hoping that the government will let them be an independent country. Now the police are starting to arrest some of the ETA members.
In class we talked about, should they use violence to get what they want or should they use peaceful manners to figure things out?` We also talked about the fact that the police were starting to put the ETA into jail for all the crime they’re doing. We also discussed about how they really want their freedom from Spain and that’s why they’re using violent weapons.
Our critical question is should the ETA use peaceful ways or violence to get their independence?
Here’s what we think:
So what do you think? Is violence ever acceptable for countries that want to be free? Leave us a comment and join us again soon here on The Blurb.
