The communique was given with a video tape. El Pais (and, I suppose, most other Spanish media) have links to the streaming video, which should be less than 2 minutes long.

Note the white masks, and the txapelas (berets).

Was it a news conference? I thought it was a video tape.

Le Monde's caption reads:"Capture d'écran : au cours d'une conférence de presse, mercredi 22 mars, l'ETA a annoncé un cessez-le-feu."

El Pais: ETA declares a permanent ceasefire
...

In addition, [ETA] recorded a video in which three etarras, their faces covered by white scarves and with txapelas on their heads, read the communique in front of the gang's logo perched behind a table showing the crest of Euskal Herria. The text, red in basque and Spanish by a woman, lasts a munite and 36 seconds. In its turn, the newspaper Gara has announced that they will publish a new declaration by ETA "on the same motive".
