We want to know more! From what we can tell an eviction resistance movement has emerged from the #spanishrevolution movement. We want to give this a much higher profile as e think it is exactly what people need to be doing at the moment.
When we asked just now on Twitter for more information, @casi_insurgente explained the following:
“the law in Spain says that when you default on your mortgage, the bank takes your house AND the debt still stands”
“they’ve managed to a couple of dozen evictions I think. More difficult now as the police have been ordered in”
“so they can’t resist without confronting the police which #15m have been reluctant to do mostly.”
#15m is another name for the movement in Spain which has seen occupations of town squares for general assemblies and a call for ‘real democracy ya!’ or ‘real democracy now’
If you know more get in touch!
