Spain Evictions

Police enter the apartment of Emilia Montoya Vazquez by forcing their way in between furniture after they broke down the main door to evict her and her family in Madrid, Spain, Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015. Montoya, who lived with her son and daughter in law, both unemployed, and three grandchildren of 7, 6, 3 years old, had accumulated a debt with the (EMV) City Hall Housing Company as she could not afford to pay rent due to her only income which is a state benefit of 460 euros ($522) a month. The eviction was carried out in spite dozens of housing right activists who gathered inside the apartment and blocked the main door. EMVS, a state company with an aim to give housing solutions for people in need, sold 1.860 state apartments to private investors, last year. (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki)
