According to the general coordinator of the training, Arnaldo Otegi, “the summer has confirmed the reflections that we have shared with the Basque people as a whole in recent years”.

In his address to the media, he referred to the fact that “there is a global dispute over geopolitical and military hegemony committed to the continuity of war in Ukraine“They tell us to prepare for the fall, they tell us it will be difficult, but they don’t tell us the reasons behind it,” he warned, referring to the coalition’s failure to share the idea that Putin is like sole responsibility for events.”The war and the strategies of the energy lobbies are the most important cause of the inflationary tensions we are suffering with the consequent devaluation of our salaries and pensions,” he pointed out.

He has assured that “war is not irreversiblethe economic recession is not irreversible”, going on to say that “EH Bildu the framework of the irreversibility of an economic recession and energy crisis that is predicted for us as a result of the commitment to a war that is increasingly deployed as a geopolitical chess piece in the struggle for political and military hegemony on a global scale”.

In this sense, he has pointed out that “capitalism is doing nothing but endangering the life of the planet and all its species”, and has ensured that there is no reformist solution to climate change.
