Fly on the Wall

Pandemic Evictions

“You think this will never happen to you because supposedly you are middle class. But then you realise that poverty is already there in the middle class too.”

All aspects of people’s lives have been impacted by the effects of the pandemic. For some, that includes housing. The Spanish government has extended a ban protecting vulnerable people and families from evictions but, as Fly On The Wall discovers, not everyone is protected. Tenants are now rising up and in some cases, taking extreme measures to keep a roof over their head.
