Eva Borja Jimenez waits for the judicial commission to carry out her eviction in Madrid 
Eva Borja Jimenez, 35, waits for the judicial commission to carry out her eviction in Madrid, February 21, 2014. Borja Jimenez and her husband Arturo Suarez Cadiz, 35, have been occupying a flat of Madrid's Municipal Housing and Land Company (EMVS) for the past sixteen years. The flat was owned by a relative of theirs who moved away in 1998 leaving a housing debt behind. The couple moved into his vacant apartment, fixed it and raised their three children there. Everyone in the family is currently unemployed and struggle to find odd jobs.Since their unemployment benefits have run out, the couple, who are expecting their fourth child, get by peddling clothes in street markets. The EMVS has not been willing to negotiate with them on the payment of social rent for the flat, on the grounds that they are squatting. Their eviction was postponed until April 11 thanks to the help of the Mortgage Victims Platform (PAH). REUTERS/Susana Vera (SPAIN - Tags: SOCIETY POVERTY REAL ESTATE BUSINESS TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)
