A boy reacts as he looks out from his window to watch Jose Antonio Giraldo Zacarias, 44, and anti-eviction activists celebrate the postponement of Giraldo's eviction in Madrid December 2, 2014. Giraldo Zacarias, a former landscape worker for 28 years, stopped making his rent payments to the Municipal Housing and Land Company (EMVS) in 2011, when he became unemployed. His apartment, where he lives with his son after he separated from his wife, was sold by the EMVS to a private investor company that raised the monthly rent by almost two hundred euros, Giraldo says.Their eviction was postponed until January 9, 2015 thanks to the help of the Mortgage Victims Platform (PAH).

An open-ended ceasefire between Israel and Hamas-led Gaza militants, mediated by Egypt, took effect on August 26 after a seven-week conflict. It called for an indefinite halt to hostilities, the immediate opening of Gaza's blockaded crossings with Israel and Egypt, and a widening of the territory's fishing zone in the Mediterranean.

A Palestinian man salvages belongings from damaged buildings in the Shejaia neighbourhood, which witnesses said was heavily hit by Israeli shelling and air strikes during an Israeli offensive, in Gaza City July 27, 2014. Fighting subsided in Gaza on Sunday after Hamas Islamist militants said they backed a 24-hour humanitarian truce, but there was no sign of any comprehensive deal to end their conflict with Israel. Some 1,060 Palestinians, mainly civilians and including many children, have been killed in the 20-day conflict. Israel says 43 of its soldiers have died, along with three civilians killed by rocket and mortar fire out of the Mediterranean enclave. After aerial and naval bombardment failed to quell the outgunned guerrillas, Israel poured ground forces into the Gaza Strip 10 days later, looking to knock out Hamas's rocket stores and destroy the vast network of tunnels.

Israel pressed on with a punishing aerial offensive in Gaza for a third day on Thursday, killing eight members of a family including five children in a predawn strike, Palestinian officials said, while militants fired rockets at Israeli cities. The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the deadliest single bombing raid since the start of the offensive on Tuesday. The attack destroyed at least two homes in Khan Younis in southern Gaza, killing the eight people, the Palestinian Health Ministry said. Sixty-one Palestinians have been killed in the violence, more than 50 of them civilians, Palestinian medical officials said.

Thirteen-year-old Ludwing, son of Luis Gregorio Paulino Hernandez and Suleyra Marilin Trinidad, leans on a wall as he waits for his family's eviction in Madrid April 25, 2014. Trinidad's husband Luis Gregorio Paulino Hernandez signed a lease for 350 euros per month for an apartment in Madrid where the family moved last November. In February they received an eviction notice demanding them to vacate the property, which belongs to Spanish nationalized lender Bankia. "I was deceived. I signed a false contract with someone who pretended to be the rightful owner of the flat, but wasn't. Later I found out that the same thing had happened to other people", Paulino Hernandez says. The family tried to negotiate with Bankia to stay in the home and pay social rent, but to no avail. Paulino Hernandez lost his job in construction almost two years ago and his unemployment benefits have run out. Both him and his wife live on doing occasional odd jobs, him as a computer technician and her as a house cleaner, but they don't make enough money to rent an apartment in the free market and put food on the table, Paulino Hernandez says.

Listeh Saavedra, 22, lives in the home with her husband Jimmy Chasi Sanguna, their two daughters, her in-laws and her brothers-in-law. The Chasi Sanguna family, who moved to Spain from Ecuador, are facing eviction as they were unable to keep up with their mortgage payments, after all family members lost their jobs in the construction and auto repair sectors between 2010 and 2011. Currently, only one of the sons, Franklin Chasi Sanguna, is employed, and his brother Henri does the occasional odd job. Their eviction was not carried out in the end because the family reached a last minute agreement with Spanish nationalized lender Bankia to leave their home within a month, and move to a Bankia social rent flat at 150 euros per month, Franklin Chasi Sanguna said.

Currently, only Franklin is employed, as a car painter three months ago, and Henri does the occasional odd job. Their eviction by Spanish nationalized lender Bankia has been postponed to April 11 due to a lack of police officers to carry it out, according to the judicial commission, Franklin said.

Rodriguez Romero lived with her husband, daughter and parents in a social rent flat of the Municipal Housing and Land Company (EMVS) in Madrid. With everyone out of job, the family fell behind with the payments resulting in debt. Despite paying off their debt, the EMVS told them to move out, Rodriguez Romero says. The family lives on benefits for the disabled (Rodriguez Romero's mother suffers from bipolar syndrome and her father has a degenerative disease) as well as Rodriguez Romero's father's pension. Their eviction was executed two days ago, on September 25, 2013, despite efforts of anti-eviction activists to stop it. Abbara is also at risk of being evicted from her home.

Marcheline Rosero, 45, disabled from the effects of polio as a child in Ecuador, sits on her bed in her flat in Madrid December 17, 2012. She and her family escaped eviction from their small Madrid flat when she fell behind on mortgage payments two years ago, and lender Bankia repossessed it. The unemployed 45-year-old, confined to a wheelchair by childhood polio, reached an agreement to stay by paying the bank a nominal rent of 240 euros per month.
But under the existing law she still owes most of a 222,000 euro home loan even after handing the property - now valued at 60,000 euros - back to Bankia. "I've got a debt there that I haven't paid back that is accumulating interest," says the former office clerk, greeting her three children as they return from school. Picture taken December 17, 2012.
