Spain Evictions

In this picture taken Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015, Diana Sofia Meliton, 2 years old, sits outside together with belongings after her and her family got evicted by the police and watches a housing right activist re-opening her apartment for them to live in Madrid, Spain. Pablo Enrique Meliton, 39 years old, his wife Damaris Varela Rivera, 36 yeas old , and their daughter Diana Sofia Meliton, 2 years old, rent a room in a occupied Bankia bank apartment one year ago as they could not afford to pay rent and stay occupying the apartment after the rest of the occupants left. They have now an income of euro 790 ($893) and they have tried to negotiate to pay a low rent but the Bankia bank demanded their eviction. Housing right activists tried to stop the process but the police evicted the family.(AP Photo/Andres Kudacki)
