Gara (Basque: We Are) is a bilingual (Basque/Spanish) newspaper published in the city of San Sebastián in the Basque Autonomous Community. The newspaper's target market comprises the area of the Basque Country, while it largely constrains to South territory on account of the languages used.

Gara has 130,000 readers by its own account,[citation needed] and was first published on 30 January 1999 as successor to the leftist and pro-separatist newspaper Egin, which had been made illegal on 15 July 1998 by the noted prosecuting judge Baltasar Garzón, with the case still pending trial in 2008.

On 12 March 2004 it became known that someone had communicated with Gara in the name of ETA, denying any ETA involvement in the March 11, 2004 Madrid attacks.[citation needed] ETA usually give notice in advance[dubious ] to Gara of the location of the explosive devices that the organization has set up.[citation needed]
