In the 1960s and 1970s, ETA faced internal re-structuring and a major debate on its mission, while experiencing increasing repression at the end of Franco’s regime. The organisation had to confront sections that rejected the national question as a petit-bourgeois claim, trying to prioritise the class struggle and subsequent alliance with Spanish political forces and the submission to a state-wide political framework. It also had to choose new organisational models and decide on the extent of the military activities it was ready to use, taking into account that new spaces for conducting politics were being opened.
