revolutionary tax

revolutionary tax
   The name applied to the payments extorted by ETA, under threat of reprisals, from businessmen and others in the Basque country, the "revolutionary tax" is so called because it is supposedly a levy on profits made through exploitation of the "Basque Working Class", whose representative ETA claims to be. Despite the success of the police force (Ertzaintza) of the Basque autonomous community in capturing a number of those responsible for such extortion, the practice has continued to be widespread, although by its nature difficult to quantify.
