How "sensitive" issue is the politics in Basque Country?

Publicado en Foro de País Vasco

Hi all,
I am going to travel to Basque country soon and I would love to meet some locals. I am interested in hearing about the whole issue about separatism from their point of view, but I don't know if it's actually polite to ask. Is it very sensitive issue in Basque Country? Do people openly talk about it or not at all?

    hi,
    I don't think you will have any problem if you ask politely about that issue. Some Basque people will be willing to speak about the political situation to a foreigner, but others are a little tired about explaining the situation , because it isn't something that can be explained in 5 min. And some of us, have contradictory feelings and ideas about it.
    But I think you shouldn't begin a conversation with this issue unless you know the people you are talking to, but once you have talk about another things you can try and see how they react.
    Regards,
    Jon
