From the Paper:

"The Basques are an indigenous people of Europe, known to have inhabited their land for over 25000 years. They speak a different language then the rest of Spain, Euskara, and their people have survived attacks from all past empires. They are a proud group of people who tend to stray from the Spanish ways. The Basque Country has a very distinctive party system. The Basque Nationalist Party is one of the oldest parties in Spain; it was originally founded and led by Sabino Arana. He led this party as a religious and conservative party in its initial stages, living up to its motto, "God and the old laws". However, this party continued to evolve. A division began to be seen in the Second Spanish Republic (Gunther, R., & Montero, J. R. 2009, 151). There was a division between automism and independentism. Throughout the following years as well, the party seemed to continually split, due to lack in unity and continuous changing in ideals. However, there had been a radical group who came together under the ideals of the Basque Nationalists, yet upset at the poor works of the Basque Party itself (Engeland, 1988). "
