year-old woman committed suicide in Barakaldo on Friday after receiving
official notice that she was to be evicted, according to local media.

Thousands of people have taken to the streets of the Basque Spanish
city of Barakaldo to condemn the suicide of an evictee as well as to
protests against further foreclosures.

­Fifty-three-year-old Amaia Egaña jumped four floors to her death as
bailiffs prepared to kick her out after she failed to stay current on
her mortgage payments. She is the second person in less than three weeks
to commit suicide in the face of an impending eviction.

Organizers of the Stop Eviction march called for immediate action by
Madrid to end foreclosures, blaming the suicide on Spain’s economic
hardship. Demonstrators shouted slogans such as ”No eviction
unanswered,” and ”Banker, remember – we have rope.”

It is estimated that more than 400,000 families have lost their homes
due to unpaid rents since the start of Spain’s financial crisis in
2007.

On Thursday, the EU Court of Justice criticized Spain’s mortgage law,
which governs evictions, calling for a halt to the reposition of
property. The Court said the legislation is incompatible with European
consumer protection standards.

Following the tragedy, Barakaldo judge Juan Carlos Mediavilla also said that it is “necessary to amend current mortgage legislation” to prevent the recurrence of such events.

Employment and Social Security Minister Fatima Banez said the government deeply regretted Egaña’s death.

Friday’s tragedy follows two similar events. On October 25, another
53-year-old, Jose Miguel Domingo, was found dead in Granada immediately
after bailiffs appeared on his doorstep. The following day, another
53-year-old jumped out of his apartment window just ahead of an eviction
in the town of Burjassot, surviving the fatal fall.

The growing trend in suicides over evictions is adding to a shopping
list of public concerns in Spain, where unemployment is going through
the roof – reaching well beyond 25 per cent.

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy will seek a deal with with the
opposition Socialists at a meeting on Monday in an effort to halt
evictions, Spanish news agency EFE reports.

“We ask the government and banks to halt all housing evictions until we have a new law,” Socialist Elena Valenciano said.

The Socialists aim to introduce a new law where evictions would be halted if a family only owns one home.

­The European countries hit hardest by the financial crisis have
shown an upsurge in suicide rates and anti-depressant prescriptions.

Greece’s suicide rate, for example, has shot through the roof. The
country’s health ministry noted a 40 per cent rise in suicides in the
first half of 2010. And by 2011, that number stood at 25 per cent in
Athens and by 18 per cent countrywide.

In Italy, suicides motivated by economic difficulties have increased
52 per cent, to 187 in 2010 from 123 in 2005, reports The New York
Times.
