Searching for a Home

Madrid. April 11, 2014.

Yolanda de Diego (26) and Jorge Avilés (57) have been occupying during the last eight months an empty house that owns to Kutxabank. De Diego, who is eight-months pregnant, and Avilés have two sons and are both unemployed.

They are trying to negotiate with the bank for a social rent, which would be paid with the few subsidies they receive.

Anti-eviction activists (PAH) and family, friends and neighbours joined them the day fixed by the judicial commission to proceed with their eviction, which was temporally suspended thanks to the social action.
