Please can anyone advise of the meaning and accurate translation of the above in the following context. I am translating an article about the current situation of Basque prisoners in Spain. The writer describes the situation 20 years ago as "o firmas la renuncia o te mueres en la carcel". I've read most of the other "renuncia" threads here but they all refer to resigning from work. I am not sure if in this context the meaning is of confession (of a crime) or renouncing of membership of an organisation (e.g. a Basque group). Can anyone advise of the correct term?
