SPAIN : Thousands Protest Evictions And Austerity...In 50 Cities.

     Thousands protested in Madrid, Barcelona and 50 other Spanish cities...over mass evictions, Madrid's austerity measures...and continuing deep recession.
     The angry marchers waved banners, banged drums and blew horns while yelling... 'We have no homes.'
      The parliament has agreed to debate a new measure to protect poor homeowners.
      Spain has century old laws that chain delinquent and insolvent homeowners to their homeowner debts for their entire lives.
     On Tuesday...a retired Mallorcan couple killed themselves...after receiving an eviction notice.
