Shouting ” its crazy homes without people and people without homes” a group of 200 people has occupied an unoccupied building in Sabadell Sud The action, which occurred at 12.15 pm, has been promoted by the Platform Affected by the Mortgage and the Crisis (PAHC). The property in question is located across the street from San Vicente de Paul, is new construction and owned by Caixa Catalunya Bank. The platform wants to live in the building families who have been evicted from their homes.

Según informa un testimonio de los hechos, tres coches de los Mossos d’Esquadra han presenciado la ocupación, aunque no han llegado a intervenir para impedirla. De momento se desconoce si la policía enviará refuerzos para desalojar el bloque. Las personas que han participado en la acción, en que también se ha leído un manifiesto, han cortado la calle para protestar por la situación de desamparo en que se encuentran muchas de las familias que han perdido su casa o están en peligro de perderla como consecuencia de la crisis económica.

As reported by a witness of events, three cars of the Catalan police have witnessed the occupation, but have failed to intervene to prevent it. It was unclear if the police sent reinforcements to dislodge the block. People who have participated in the action, which also have read a manifesto, have cut the street to protest the lack of protection that are many families who have lost their homes or are in jeopardy as a result of the economic crisis.
