The Law 24/2015 Promoting Group presents a manifesto to demand the recovery of the Catalan Law against evictions and supply cuts.

The housing articles of this law were challenged by the Partido Popular Political Party in the Constitutional Court in May 2016 and is suspended in articles that refer to guaranteeing the right to housing. "With 61 daily evictions and the emergency tables collapsed with more than 2,000 applicants, while financial institutions continue to speculate on housing, it is clear the urgency of having the Law 24/2015 in force in its entirety this same month of October", so states the communiqué launched by the Promoting Group of the ILP, formed by the Platform of People Affected by Mortgages (the PAH Barcelona), the DESC Observatory and the Alliance against Energy Poverty.
