      Things are getting a bit tense in Almería. The second anniversary of the demolition of the Prior’s house on January 9th. Now eight more final notices on demolitions of homes in Albox – all apparently retired Brits – and the casual figure tossed about of ‘11.000 viviendas ilegales’ in the eastern province in such towns as Zurgena, Arboleas, Cantoria, Albox and so on.
      Locally, we are wondering how to mark these events and grab the attention of the Spanish media, perhaps on January 9th. Demonstrations? Done that. A commercial one-day boycott? There are for and against arguements (if Mark will permit me?) on http://www.arboleas.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=29373.0.

      A demonstration in today’s society does not have the same affect in a Country. The thick skin politicians simply ignore it, by thinking/saying it is a democratic right of the Citizens.

      I sugguest a multi facet & sustained effort is needed. Perhaps a meeting with the leader’s of Anarchist organisation for some tips is the way to go.

      People should also look into Spain’s history & find out the most outrageous ways of complaining from the Moorish times to as recent as antics used by Luis Matoes.

      In Spain the creative & the outrageous form of protest gains publicity. I recall recently that the truckers in UK wanted to protest. They did this by bringing their trucks to Hyde Park on a Sunday in July with a family picnic !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

      While I am not here to propagate breaking the law. Let us first look at the reasons why law exist.

      In a “democratic” society the law exist to protect citizens and have a fairer society. If this fundamental basis of the law and its spirit is not implemented than the next stage is Anarchy.

      I am afraid Spain has been on the edge of this situation for as long as I have affiliation with Spain. The British in Spain need to learn that if you cannot beat them join them.

      It seems that the “stick to the law” quietly quietly approach doesn’t work, no one actually cares one hoot for any of us . MP’s can’t be asked (can’t get involed probably not woth their while) As for Gordon waste of space Brown. Most of us have tried everything to get justice / fairness for our plights, the Spanish Law system again doesn’t give a sh-t, the frustration is so engulfing you feel like lashing out. Surely there is someone that can help all of the people in Spain who have unwittingly YES unwittingly been cheated and lied to over the the last 6 years which is how long we have been trying to sort out our mess.
      If people want to demonstrate , either here or in Spain , lets all do it lets go after the bas-ards. Peoples lives cannot and must not be played with and ruined by greedy and corrupt individuals and companies. I am now at the stage where I can’t just sit back and do nothing. People are losing their homes for goodness sake. Where to start ? Im a do-er not an organiser. Help !!!!

      umm feel better for the rant now 🙄
