MADRID, SPAIN - NOVEMBER 12:   A demonstrator shouts slogans during a protest against evictions outside the PP (Popular Party) headquarters on November 12, 2012 in Madrid, Spain. Right placard reads 'Stop evictions'. Spain's banks announced today that for the next two years they will suspend mortgage-related evictions of the most vulnerable people. The Spanish Banking Association (AEB) reacted three days after a woman in Barakaldo took her life just before she was due to be evicted from her home. A male homeowner facing eviction in Grenada committed suicide fifteen days earlier. There have been around 350,000 house evictions since Spain's property market crashed in 2008. The Platform for Mortgage Victims organisation has been preventing some evictions by blocking access to houses under threat of repossession.
