Locksmiths and firemen standing up for the citizens and to refusing aid evictions in Spain
Locksmiths and firemen in Spain are rebelling against a wave of evictions in the economic crisis by refusing to help bailiffs open ruined homeowners’ doors to throw them out.

“Families’ lives were being ruined and we were acting as executioners,” David Ormaechea, president of the Locksmiths Union, told AFP. “It was causing us tension and unease.”

A wave of evictions of mortgage-holders ruined by the recession has prompted several suicides and sparked a protest movement that last week brought a motion to parliament for a law to end the procedure.

With the locksmiths refusing to take part, some authorities have been asking the fire service to step in and break open the doors of those resisting eviction.

On Tuesday in the northwestern city of A Coruna, firefighters were called to help evict an 85-year-old woman who had defaulted on her rent.

A crowd of protestors gathered outside the apartment to block the eviction. When the firefighters arrived they refused to open the door and some of them joined in the protest.

Firefighters in other regions such as Catalonia and Madrid have since followed their example.

“We come to the aid of people in emergencies. It is contradictory to help the banks that are putting people’s lives in danger” by evicting them, Antonio del Rio, a labour union representative for the Catalonia fire service, told AFP.

What about those that lived beyond their means and were given a morgage for a home they could never afford?

thats the banks fault, did we not learn anything from 2008? banks giving out loans to people who they knew couldnt pay it. people are in debt to the banks. they take what ever they can to make a profit. its also the peoples fault for blindly listening to the banks
