Although the group has announced a permanent ceasefire, Spain's crackdown on members of the Basque separatist organisation ETA is continuing.
Two suspected ETA members were arrested in a joint operation by Spanish and French police less than 24 hours after the group said its struggle for a Basque homeland would now be conducted using dialogue, rather than guns.
Just why is ETA making this move now? Has it given up its fight for a Basque independent homeland?
Inside Story, with presenter James Bays, discusses with Miguel Rozas, El Mundo's editorial producer, Bill Bond, a journalist who has covered ETA extensively, and Inaki Soto, the editor-in-chief of Gara newspaper.
This episode of Inside Story aired from Wednesday, January 12, 2010.
