Bajo, mother of a 13-year-old daughter, is unemployed and has no income. Spain's main political parties started negotiations about eviction law reform on Monday after a homeowner's suicide provoked public fury and accusations that politicians and banks are complicit in de facto "murder". The signs read, "Stop evictions". REUTERS/Heino Kalis
