PAH is the perhaps most interesting and strong movement emerging from the Spanish crisis, and it has more than 200 generally active and combative chapters across the Spanish state. Beginning in 2009 the PAH has set up a model of organisation and social power through which its many participants have managed to overcome the individualisation of debt. This has created a strong fighting and caring organisation, in which people collectively resist evictions, re-negotiate loans with banks, and occupy empty buildings for its evicted members.
