About

SOHA is formed by a group of local residents whose mission is:

  • the protection of the rights of Axarquia residents in accordance with article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
  • to help residents protect their homes with legal help and direct action.
  • to actively campaign for the establishment of an amnesty for honest home-owners in Axarquia.

SOHA (Save Our Homes in Axarquia) was formed in January 2008. We have no ambition other than to save our homes.

We aim to achieve our objectives through peaceful means, through discussion and engagement at the highest levels possible. We wish to encourage our political leaders to see that the demolition of homes causes widespread negative effects not only to homeowners but the population as a whole. Depressed economic activity, fewer Europeans arriving, empty houses and higher unemployment. No good can come of this other than an agreement to do things right in the future by all parties.

Should it become necessary we will engage legal services to fight our case even up to the European Court of Human Rights. This takes a lot of money and one of our most pressing objectives is the raising of funds, it is more cost effective if we all pull together than to pay for it individually.

Ultimately, we will be prepared to take to the streets to plead our case and even stand together as one between the buldozers and our homes. Stand with us.
