Zutik (English: Stand up) is a political party in Basque Country, Spain. Zutik was formed in 1991 through the merger of the EMK and LKI—the Basque branch of LCR. Within Zutik there is a current affiliated to the United Secretariat of the Fourth International. Zutik has a branch in Navarre known as Batzarre.

Zutik members ran once on electoral lists of Euskal Herritarrok (EH), but in the 2004 Spanish general election, Zutik put an electoral platform together with Aralar. Both were opposing ETA violence.
