Historical occupation of more than 50 BBVA bank offices to demand the withdrawal of the eviction notices
The head offices have already been occuped and paralysed for 18 days, with judges sseveral times refusing to sign eviction orders. Then on a Monday morning by surprise no less than 55 banks of BBVA were occupied and paralysed. This is shaping up to be a mass citizens expropriation of THE NEAR HALF A MILLION evicted homes now held by the banks and being sold off to speculators
VICTORY. next morning the BBVA bank gave in and promised none of the guarantors in Sabadell will be evicted to pay odious mortgage debts. Many other cases will follow this precedent. THIS IS HOW TO WIN!!…However news of the victory was hardly mentioned in the commercial media.
La victoria de la PAH de Sabadell, y la presión ejercida estos días ha provocado también que el banco esté intentando comunicarse con interlocutores otros PAHs para informar sobre la voluntad de resolver otros casos que también estaban muy encallados: la victoria, por tanto, trasciende los casos de la PAH de Sabadell.

On Saturday, Popular Party Secretary-General María Dolores de Cospedal, number two of the governing party in Spain, said that she knew she was going to get criticized, “but this is pure Nazism.” On Sunday, rather than resigning, she repeated it. For more precision, she added that going to a politician’s house to “harass” him “is a totalitarian attitude comparable to what occurred in the thirties in a European country.” A reference to Nazis marking the homes of Jews.
But these “Nazis” are folks who are standing up to the banks and draconian mortgage laws that the government is hell-bent on protecting. Continue reading “Swindled, evicted and denounced as ‘The New Nazi of Spain’”

Police went in after them and sealed off the entrance against sympathisers and press who assembled outside.
The occupiers demanded an end to the evictions, and the right to for those at risk of eviction to stay in their houses, paying a social rent. Continue reading “Bankia occupied after Debt Suicides”
