PHOTO GALLERY | Evicted a couple of octogenarians in the Madrid neighborhood of Carabanchel

José Manuel and María, aged 78 and 82, have lived for the last 55 years in a home in the Carabanchel neighborhood. This Friday they have lost their house after executing their eviction, despite the call of the Carabanchel Housing Union that brought together a group of dozens of neighbors and activists to try to stop it. After the execution of the eviction, the demonstration has been directed to protest towards Social Services of the Madrid City Council.

José Manuel, who has not resisted, was waiting inside the home, while his wife, with a disability, has followed him into the home of a son. After the death of the owner of the apartment, one of the heirs decided to put an end to the old rent and took advantage of an error in the payment of community expenses, a debt that amounted to 800 euros and that the couple paid later, collect public.
