There is a group called ETA that is spreading political fliers around Encinitas. They are very clear about which City Council Candidates they support and which they oppose.
This is what Wikipedia says about ETA — could the Basque Homeland wars have come to Encinitas California?…
ETA or Euskadi Ta Askatasuna, (English: Basque Homeland and Freedom; pronounced [ˈɛːta]), is an armed Basque nationalist and separatist organisation. The group was founded in 1959 and has since evolved from a group promoting traditional Basque culture to a paramilitary group with the goal of gaining independence for the Greater Basque Country from a Marxist-Leninist perspective.
Since 1968, ETA has killed over 800 individuals, injured thousands and undertaken dozens of kidnappings. The group is proscribed as a terrorist organization by the Spanish and French authorities, as well as the European Union as a whole, and the United States. This convention is followed by a plurality of domestic and international media, which also refer to the group as “terrorists”. More than 700 members of the organization are incarcerated in prisons in Spain, France, and other countries.
