Spanish protesters resist home seizures

Property bubble has seen tens of thousands evicted from their homes after they were unable to make repayments.

    José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, Spain's prime minister, has delayed his holiday plans after the risk premium rose on the country's debt.

    Since the recession and the collapse of the country's property bubble, tens of thousands of people have been evicted from their homes, after they were unable to make repayments.

    Often protesters gather to try to prevent the evictions from taking place.
