Spain: Neighbors and Activists Avoid the Eviction of a 92-Year-Old in Barcelona

The police have been forced to suspend the eviction because it is not possible to take out one by one the people who were in front of the house door

Several dozen activists and residents of the Clot neighborhood of Barcelona have avoided this Monday the eviction of a 92-year -old man from his home, sitting in front of the door in peaceful resistance.

Sources of the Mossos d’Esquadra (police) have informed Efe that the eviction has been suspended, for the moment, as it is not possible to take out one by one the people who were in front of the door of the old man’s house.

The Observatory of Housing and Tourism of the Clot-Camp de l’Arpa has indicated, in turn, in several tweets that the judicial execution of the eviction has been postponed until February 11 due to the tenant’s health status, with Dependency grade 2.
