Euronews reported that tens of thousands of people in Spain’s northern Basque region formed a human chain on the 8 June 2014, demanding the right to hold a vote on self-determination.

Some 123 kilometres long, it echoed a similar demonstration in September 2013 in Catalonia, another Spanish region with a large independence movement.
