Spain Evictions

February 16, 2013 - 3:30 PM
Demonstrators and the Platform of People Affected by Mortgages, holding banners reading 'Stop Evictions', shout slogans to change mortgage laws and halt evictions of those unable to pay mortgages in Madrid, Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013. The government agreed to consider changes to the law on mortgages after pressure from opposition parties and a growing public outcry, including a petition that was signed by 1.4 million people – enough signatures to force Parliament to discuss alterations to the law in a special session.
