Mortgage repossession protesters stage flash-mob siege outside government vice-president's house
07 April 2013 @ 13:51

AT LEAST 200 protesters gathered outside what they believed to be the home of government vice-president Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría yesterday chanting and calling for mortgage laws to be changed and more protection against repossession.

They targeted a property near the Plaza de Manuel Becerra in Madrid's upmarket Salamanca district and also left an envelope addressed to the vice-president filled with fake 500-euro notes, alluding to the recent scandal in which former PP treasurer Luis Bárcenas is alleged to have paid top-flight party members, including the president, cash-in-hand extra wages over a period of 10 years.

The crowd included Jorge Verstrynge former secretary-general of the Alianza Popular ('popular alliance'), as the PP used to be known.
