Gara (Basque: We Are) is a bilingual (Basque/Spanish) newspaper published in the city of Donostia-San Sebastián in the Basque Autonomous Community. The newspaper's target market comprises the area of the Basque Country, but its circulation is largely constrained to the Southern Basque territory (Spain), since Spanish is mainly 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 Basque nationalist newspaper Egin, which had been shut down by the noted prosecuting judge Baltasar Garzón in a highly controversial move on 15 July 1998. The case was dismissed and defendants acquitted, with the final verdict stating that no illicit activity was engaged by Egin (2009).

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