Protesters in the basque region of Spain rallied on the 11 January 2014 to protest about the treatment of imprisoned members of the separatist group ETA. The demonstration was held after an earlier ban imposed by a Madrid court on behalf of the Spanish government on the 10 January 2014, argued that the ban was organised by the banned group ETA.

Two of the region's main political parties - the pro-independence Bildu and the more moderate nationalist Partido Nacionalista Vasco (PNV) - joined forces to restage the rally in a rare moment of unity.
