Hi Royboy, you are absolutely right, having browsed around I've got confused with all this discussion about the March, Petitions, UK petitions, EU petitions, masks, candlelight vigils, and so on - Facebooks (frankly I got diverted for hours on that one)
Victims of the recent demolition orders, together with their lawyers, met yesterday in Albox with several representatives of the town council and the AUAN to discuss the current situation. The Mayor of Albox, Sr. José García, was in Seville for talks with the Viceconsejero of the Planning office of the Junta de Andalucia, Justo Mañas Alcón.
The lawyers representing affected homeowners outlined their points of view. It was underlined that the legal process is both complicated and very advanced.
Town Hall officials were at pains to reassure those facing the loss of their homes that “Your problem is our problem” and that “We are all in the same boat”. Asked whether Sr. Garcia would be prepared to execute the orders, we were told that he would do everything in his power, within the law, to prevent them from being carried out. We were assured the Town Hall would not act impulsively and would continue to stay in close touch with the affected parties and their lawyers. Sr Garcia will return to Seville for another meeting next week with the AUAN..
It was explained that it was in the hands of the Junta de Andalucia to stop these demolitions and within their legal powers to do so. Our continued pressure is therefore one of the most valuable tools we have in our struggle to stop this lunacy.
Meanwhile, support for the planned demonstration on Monday has grown and grown. We have had to increase the number of coaches to take people to Almeria from Albox, and we will be joined there by groups from all over the country. Media interest has also been strong. In the UK many national newspapers have given us wide coverage. Spanish media interest is also very high and we have had sympathetic and widespread coverage. A campaign has been mounted on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Stop-house-demolitions-in-Albox-and-other-areas-of-Spain/274981508867?ref=mf ), there is a petition to 10 Downing Street (http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/No-demolitions/#detail ).
Local ‘Albojenses’ (citizens of Albox) are signing a petition and the story is being covered on countless forums and interest-group web-sites in both English and Spanish.
Latest….. The planned demolition of a home in Vera on the 12th of January has been postponed after last minute legal arguments were accepted.
Our thanks to all the individuals and media who are supporting us. We still need you! Please continue to help!
