There´s nothing to celebrate
The foral government will celebrate the military anexion of Navarra to Castille, fact which happened on 2012. In my humble opinion, there is nothing to celebrate; there is nothing to give thanks for: there is nothing to feel happiness for. Is it fair to celebrate that a free people has been conquered by violence, almost pulled to death?
We have been told that history was written by winners. Maybe. Probably that´s why Government of Navarre wants to celebrate that Castille annexed the Old Reign. That´s the point: the Foral Government considers that Navarre was not the victim of a war, but the allied which Castille signed an agreement with. It´s the point of view the key which changes the history.
For the patriots of Navarre, 2012 will be a year of condolence and sadness. But we cannot stop there, because there are a lot of work to do for our homeland. So let´s not waste our time by feeding our pain. Just let´s take advantage of the celebration and let´s start a claiming from now till year 2012.
"There´s nothing to celebrate. Navarre will rise again." That could be our motto. Hail brothers and patriots of the Old Reign!
