B8‑1248/2016

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to Rule 133 of its Rules of Procedure,

A. whereas in various Member States, such as Greece, the banks and the State expedite auctions of the primary residences of thousands of ordinary working people and their families who are unable to pay their mortgage instalments, their unbearable tax burden and business loans (in the case of bankrupt small entrepreneurs), including the guarantors of such loans, on account of the tough measures imposed on workers by EU governments and the EU institutions in order to ensure the profitability of corporations;

B. whereas housing is an inalienable right for workers and their families;

 

1.  Calls on the governments of Member States to take immediate legislative measures to protect primary and secondary residences and to stop any compulsory enforcement action or other such measures by credit institutions and the State against ordinary working people and their families, the unemployed, the self-employed, small tradesmen and craftsmen, poor farmers and stockbreeders and fishermen, in order to repay their mortgage and business debts, consumer loans and tax liabilities, and also against the guarantors of such loans, and at the same time to write off the interest and 50% of capital of the above loans.
