Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson will attend the first EH Bildu conference in the Bilbao this weekend. 

Martina Anderson said: 

“Sinn Féin has long been a supporter of efforts to secure independence in the Basque county.

“This weekend I will attend the first conference of EH Bildu in Bilbao which will formally bring together the four constituent parties into a cohesive new movement. 

“This conference will give people the opportunity to shape what EH Bildu will look like in the future and its role. 

“The international community, and the EU in particular, have a role to play in supporting the Basque peace process.”
