At the entrance to the municipality of hazards (11,000 inhabitants), in the metropolitan area of Granada, a poster reminds all article 47 of the Constitution: the right to enjoy decent housing. From the month of March, neighbors and visitors know, upon arrival to the village, which the City Council is against evictions in desahucios.org. And it is not just a gesture. Izquierda Unida and democratic alternative of hazards (ADP), which govern in minority (six of 17 Councillors), are taking small steps against one of the unfortunate consequences that is leaving the crisis: families forced from their homes by the non-payment of the mortgage. The worrying situation of helplessness that found thousands of families and the increase in foreclosures with a forecast upward motivated the presentation of a motion to the House of the town hall that left IU five Councillors and was approved with the votes of ADP and PSOE. She urges the central Government to take measures to guarantee the right to housing, but beyond State competition, the municipality is taking actions to combat drama. The Mayor, Roberto Garcia, is aware of the limitations to fight what he considers one of the greatest injustices of these turbulent moments from the Town Hall, but takes the initiative in what you can. This week, the Government team has cancelled municipal accounts that had in CajGranada by lack of cooperation and understanding of the banking entity.
According to the consistory, far from negotiating a situation that is very difficult for one of the families of the people, the entity continues with its claims. The box, which made public that it applies the code of good practice, has declined to pronounce on this municipal decision. If other entities at least think it is a little, it will have served for something, explains the Councillor for employment, Local development, youth, citizen participation and communication, Jose Antonio Paniagua.
