In 2010 Spanish banks foreclosed on more than 100,000 households contributing to the already large number of empty houses in Spain. With as many as one million properties unsold victims of Spain's financial crisis have turned to squatting in the empty buildings. This building has stood empty for two years before the anti-eviction platform of Girona and several homeless families moved in three months ago. The community houses a total of 8 families who have to suffer water and electricity cuts and live with the fear of eviction. (Photo by David Ramos/Getty Images)
