Locksmiths in Pamplona refuse to assist banks in evictions
The locksmiths’ rebellion follows several widely reported suicides by people about to be evicted from their homes. Amaia Egaña, a 53-year-old former socialist councillor in the northern town of Barakaldo, threw herself out of a window just as the court authorities – and their locksmith – were about to evict her in November.
“It wasn’t suicide,” demonstrators who marched through her town later that day shouted. “It was murder.”
