  Euskadi ta Askatasuna
A separate republic, Euskadi, existed briefly in 1936–37, during the Spanish Civil War.
As Euskadi supported the Republican Spanish government, its capital Guernica was virtually destroyed by German and Italian bombers supporting General Franco.
After talks in May 1999 between ETA and the Spanish government held in Zurich, Switzerland, failed to produce agreement, the ceasefire was ended in November and January 2000 saw violence resume.

A truce was called in 1989 and secret negotiations between government and ETA representatives were held in Algeria, but the talks broke down and guerrilla activity resumed.

ETA violence continued unabated, however, claiming the lives of a Supreme Court judge and his two bodyguards in late October, and Ernest Lluch, a former socialist minister, the following month.

Euskadi Ta Askatasuna said the target of the August 4 blast - a headquarters of the paramilitary Civil Guard in the resort town of Santa Pola - was a legitimate military target.
The court sentence said Francisco Mugica was in charge of "directing ETA commandos from France" and proposed that a group of four militants attack the bus carrying officers of the military academy in the city of Zaragoza.
In December ETA was labelled a terrorist organisation by the European Union, but at that time the EU refused to include Batasuna on its list of terrorist groups, in part because it is a legal political party that has one member elected to the European Parliament.

 elmundo.es | Especial ETA: la dictadura del terror | Historia
Un grupo de estudiantes radicales disidentes del colectivo EKIN –nacido en 1952 para reaccionar contra la pasividad y el acomodo que en su opinión padecía el PNV– funda Euskadi Ta Askatasuna (Euskadi y Libertad).
Es el nacimiento de ETA, una alternativa ideológica a los postulados del PNV con cuatro pilares básicos: la defensa del euskara, el etnicismo (como fase superadora del racismo), el antiespañolismo y la independencia de los territorios que, según reivindican, pertenecen a Euskadi: Álava, Vizcaya, Guipúzcoa, Navarra (en España), Lapurdi, Baja Navarra y Zuberoa (en Francia).
En estos primeros años, la policía persigue a sus miembros, que se dedican a colocar pequeños artefactos sin apenas consecuencias, hacer pintadas de «Gora Euskadi» (Viva Euskadi) y colocar ikurriñas.
