They will call it what they want but what happened in Cornellá has been a murder

On the morning of June 14, 2018, the press echoed a new life taken by a criminal system promoted by the banking system.
A 45-year-old man has died at the hands of the banking system and the criminal legislation of this country, in terms of housing. He was going to be evicted because he could not pay the rent of his house to Banco Popular. A house recently acquired by the Blackstone vulture fund. This outrageous event, has occurred on the same day that the PAH started a new international campaign against these scavengers.
The victim was facing his second eviction, but today, when a judicial delegation accompanied by agents of the Mossos d’Esquadra was going to evict the family from the house, located on the tenth floor of the block, he has decided to end his life due to his despair.
The family was a registered at the local Social Services and was waiting to receive aid from the Administration that never arrived, that broke their hope. And there are many hopes on the verge of bankruptcy, on the verge of a suicide that is really murder. The greediness of banks that have killed him deprives them of feelings. And now, everyone (social services, banks, justice …) will kick balls out.
From the PAH we demand urgent measures that rescue those hopes and end with so much injustice, with so much suffering with so much death.
In his memory and on the memory of all the people previously killed, to prevent it from happening again, from the PAH we call to concentrate tomorrow at 12 o’clock, in front of the doors of the Banco Popular and later in front of the PSOE headquarters, with some clear demands that we have been raising for years:
Indefinite moratorium on evictions of families in situations of social exclusion and vulnerability.
That the Government of Pedro Sánchez immediately withdraw all resources to the autonomic housing laws pending in the TC.
That the Housing Law of the PAH be processed and approved urgently, the only one that includes all the mechanisms to end once and for all the usury of the banks, the speculation of our most fundamental rights, and achieve that in this country we can say that we have a law that guarantees the right to housing for all without exception.
It’s not a motto, it’s a reality! There are lives at stake and the time has come to put a solution, to avoid further bias.

Bankia: hacia una banca pública y social

Hoy comparece en el Congreso, ante la Comisión de investigación sobre la crisis financiera, el presidente de Bankia desde 2012, José Ignacio Goirigolzarri.

En su comparecencia hará referencia al latrocinio desarrollado por la entidad en la etapa anterior a él: tarjetas black, preferentes, salida a bolsa… Lo que no mencionará es que se trata también de un banco que, además de un ávido desahuciador, vendió hipotecas cargadas de cláusulas abusivas, fue rescatado con 40 mil millones de euros públicos, absorbió BMN, y llevó a cabo el ERE más importante del país con 7.000 empleados eliminados. Ni contará que actualmente ha adjudicado la gestión de todos sus activos inmobiliarios a Haya Real Estate, sociedad propiedad del fondo buitre Cerberus.

Ahora Bankia está en vías de ser privatizada de nuevo, sin antes haber devuelto ni la mitad del total de su rescate. Así se vuelve a privarnos de una banca pública capaz de atender, con una visión social y sin abusos, a las demandas de financiación.

Desde la PAH, exigimos a Goirigolzarri veracidad en sus declaraciones, como actual responsable debe denunciar expresamente las gestiones realizadas, ya que éstas podrían servir para futuras acciones legales contra los responsables de las diferentes estafas provocadas por Bankia y sus precursores. Aunque eso no le libra de tener que dar explicaciones de por que Bankia sigue dejando en la cuneta a las familias estafadas, patrocinando desahucios y arrebantando hogares.

Asímismo exigimos al Gobierno de Pedro Sanchez. que no permita los planes de privatización de Bankia. Tras recibir un rescate de 40.000 millones de euros, se trata de una entidad pública y debe ser dotada de las características de una Banca Pública. Bankia debe ser de todas y así librarnos de los abusos y estafas, de la banca privada tradicional.

Nosotras lo tenemos claro:
