“A government that claims to be progressive must do everything possible to ensure that there are no deportations.” Based on this premise, Isa Serra and Rafael Mayoral, spokesman for Podemos, asked the PSOE, their government partner, for a “reflection” to strengthen the social shield and paralyze the evictions and cuts of basic supplies during the emergency. sanitary.
From Podemos, they consider this measure “urgent”. Serra and Mayoral have therefore called a press conference to demand that the right to housing be guaranteed in a situation of alert and curfew, where it is “unjust” and “inhuman” to evict vulnerable families while demanding citizenship to stay at home.
Podemos ‘petition is not only addressed to Pedro Sánchez, but also to all banking entities and owners’ funds so that they do not carry out “forced evictions” in the case of families with limited resources who do not have no other alternative accommodation.
According to Podemos, the regulations adopted in response to the health crisis have made it possible to paralyze “a significant number of people affected by evictions expressly derived from COVID”. But they consider that this has been “insufficient”, which is why they want to extend the legislation so that there is “a judgment of vulnerability” when the eviction takes place.
Podemos focuses above all on Sareb because he considers that an entity with public capital cannot carry out evictions like the one experienced last week in the Madrid district of Carabanchel. “A government that claims to be progressive must do everything possible to ensure that there are no evictions,” Serra said.
