Buenos Aires, Argentina. Basques and their descendants that live outside of Euskal Herria work hard to keep, cultivate and spread the Basque culture all year round.  This work is carried out, most of the time, in silence and the majority remain unknown outside of limited circles.  This is why the proposal of celebrating the Day of the Diaspora, the Basque community abroad, allowed dozens of institutions to give more visibility to their activities. presents another installment of videos and photos reflecting the large participation on September 8th around the world.
