Abertzaleen Batasuna (Patriot's Union or Unity in Basque) (A.B.) is a Basque political party in Francemarker.

It is the largest Basque nationalist party of the French Basque Country gathering around 10% of the votes in this territory .Its immediate goal is the establishment of a Pays Basque d├ępartement out of Pyrenees Atlantiquesmarker. In terms of ideology, besides Basque nationalist, it is a leftist political party.

In 2001, members of AB who desired a stronger link to Southern Basques left to form the Northern branch of Batasuna, a different party with a similar ideology which is now illegal in Spain.

AB neither justifies (as Batasuna does) nor condemns (as all other Basque parties do) the violence of ETA, calling instead to a truce.ETA has scolded AB for this lack of support from what is seen as a friendly organization.

The opinion newspaper most related to AB is Enbata.
