From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Egin was a Basque newspaper written in Spanish language and Basque language. It was published from Hernani by Orain SA, which also ran the radio station Egin Irratia. Its first issue was published on September 29, 1977.

For many years Egin was accused of being used by the separatist organization Euskadi Ta Askatasuna (ETA). In 1994, the Ertzaintza (Basque police) searched the headquarters of Egin.

At dawn on July 14 of 1998, Judge Baltasar Garzón ordered the precautionary closure of both media and the arrest of several of Orain, SA. In August 1999, the judge authorised the reopening of the newspaper, however it was not able to cope with its debts and remained closed.

The newspaper Gara filled the void.
