Juan de Bilbao Kalea revisited

Here’s a pair of new photos from Juan de Bilbao Kalea. The first one is protesting against the development in Donostia / San Sebastián, where increased tourism and the backwash of the economic crisis have begun to change the character of the old town. Many locals can’t afford to stay when landlords can earn more money on renting the flats to tourists. You can read more in this English article in the Basque magazine Argia: A wave which may drown us.

The second is another one about the ETA prisoners, calling for a transfer to the Basque Country and amnesty. On the top, the green sign encourages people to bizi euskaraz, ‘live in Basque’.
