A workman inspects the structure of the Saint-Pierre-aux-Liens church as they partially tear it down in the village of Geste, western France, August 29, 2013. The 19th-century neo-gothic parish church, dedicated to St. Peter, was scheduled for demolition in 2007 by the city council, a victim of its size, maintenance costs and overall municipal budget issues. The current church, with only the bell tower and crypt remaining, will be replaced by a new one in 2016 that will be far cheaper to keep up. This destruction is part of a large debate across France where villages are faced with churches in deteriorating condition, diminishing populations, with fewer parishioners and priests, and increasing upkeep costs.

Ahmed El Jaidi (back), 46, prays as he stages a sit-in with others facing possible eviction, at an office of Larcovi, the property promoter managing the social rent flat he resides in, in Madrid September 16, 2013. El Jaidi, his wife and four children have been living in the social rent flat since 2008. In January 2012, he lost his cleaner job after 20 years of employment, and stopped paying rent shortly after, resulting in a debt of 8,457 euros plus interest, he says. Negotiation proved futile. After hours of waiting to be let inside on this day, he was asked to return the next day, only to be told eviction would be carried out on September 20, 2013 as planned.
