Intervention #1

by Núria Güell

I create a cooperative in order to hire an unemployed and evicted construction worker. He is assigned the task of demolishing the access doors to certain empty buildings that Caja Mediterráneo (CAM) had purchased in an auction after their residents had been evicted. The objective was to remove the doors to empty homes that CAM had purchased in auction after evicting the families that lived there. By hiring a worker, he was guaranteed total impunity to avoid any sort of formal complaint, strategy use by banks to avoid the law of civil procedure and acquire evicted homes for 50% of its appraised value.
58,241 evictions were conducted In Spain last year. In the last years this bank increased its growth exponentially through the speculation in the real estate sector and the internal corruption with the complicity of politicians. As a result of the real estate bubble this entity has been taken over by the State with 5.800.000.000 €, fact that should be enough for have as priority serve society. Despite its evident responsibility, State and justice allow the consequences of its greed be the punishment of the victims and enrichment of the guilty.
