“Solidarity with member organisation: the Sindicat de Llogateres Barcelona- tenant’s rights activist threatened by prison
“Solidarity with our colleagues of the Sindicat de Llogateres Barcelona- tenant’s rights activist threatened by prison
The IUT has sent an urgent note of protest to the Prime Minister of Spain and the President of the Catalan government in view of the imminent imprisonment of the spokesperson of the Barcelona Tenants’ Association and 2 tenants. The right to organise in tenants’ associations is inviolable. The right to demonstrate for one’s legitimate tenant rights is sacrosanct. Peaceful protest and resistance against no-fault evictions and rent-seeking must not lead to criminal prosecution.
We call on everyone to stand in solidarity with the Sindicat de Llogateres. Support them in their successful struggle for a fair tenancy and rent control law in Spain and against forced evictions.
Stop the criminalisation of tenants rights activists! The President and board of the International Union of Tenants”
