Priors’ Judgement and Demonstration.

The big news this month was the latest development in the ongoing Priors’ saga. Long after the courts have given judgements in their favour, they have yet to receive a penny in compensation for the demolition of their home, and face the prospect of paying their own, massive, legal fees for defending themselves against a horrendous injustice.
More details here.

A demonstration in support of the Priors was organised by AUAN, and attended by SOHA, although the late notice to us for the event, and the clash with our Guardia event on the same day meant that our numbers were few. Those who did go made a significant contribution, and two wrote a report. Thank you, Jane and Robert.

The associations SOHA and AUAN and the confederation CALU have expressed their concern with what they consider to be the delay in the progress of the parliamentary bill.

This bill contains alterations to planning law which SOHA believe to be essential in the fight to get justice for those who bought their homes in good faith, and find their legality to be in doubt.

Cordoba Hoy reported the meeting in Sevilla of CALU and its associations.

SOHA has engaged the services of a media agent to promote nationwide coverage of our aims and progress.

Previously we have only obtained local media coverage, except in the deplorable case of the Priors. This month we had coverage in Sur ES, La Vanguardia, and El Rincon Habla.
