MADRID — Victims of terrorism were staging what they claimed would be the biggest demonstration yet against the government's efforts to start talks with ETA.

The mass march was to be organised in central Madrid on Saturday by the Association for the Victims of Terrorism (AVT) with the support of the opposition Popular Party and other political groups.

Francisco José Alcaraz, AVT president, called on others to join the march against what he claimed was "incorrectly known as the process of peace".

He called on José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero not to concede anything to the terrorists.

"Instead we want a defeat (for the terrorists) so that we come out as winners and the terrorists as losers," said Alcaraz.

He appealed to the government to "listen to the voices and take into account what we say".

Alcaraz added: "It represents the feeling of the majority in the country."
