Spain Financial Crisis Evictions

Mercedes Pincay, 50 years, empties her apartment through the back door as riot police surround them to evict her and her partner in Madrid, Spain, Monday, Dec. 15, 2014. The landlord’s loss of the apartment to a Bankia bank caused Mercedes Pincay and her partner Aristides Apolo’s eviction. Mercedes Pincay lived with Apolo, 58 years, unemployed, in a foreclosed apartment that was owned by her sister who stopped paying her mortgage fees. Mercedes and Apolo stayed occupying the apartment as they could not afford to pay rent due to their financial situation and she was recovering from breast cancer. The eviction was carried out.
