Occupy affordable housing!

In many US cities the Occupy movement has continued in protests against foreclosures with activists staging protests & sit-ins against home evictions. Here, in a protest in Oviedo, Spain, police are wrestling with activists protesting the eviction of an Ecuadorian family (including a 5-month-old child) unable to keep up their mortgage payments to the bank. Seventeen people locked themselves in the home & 200 people protested outside to stop the eviction. The international Occupy movement recognizes the centrality of affordable housing to politics around the world today. (Photo by Javier Bauluz/ Periodismo Humano)
