“Charging aid of 550 euros per month is impossible to find a rental, But in addition, as soon as we mention that the City Council will pay the deposits, then there is no longer any option. Nobody wants vulnerable people.” Nerea, one of those affected by the in a building in Alfonso Temporarily transferred to a hostel, they are after finishing the emergency device. Yesterday, these affected people gathered in front of the Xunta to intervene, after receiving a letter from the City Council announcing that starting tomorrow they had to take charge of the payment for the hostel or proceed to look for a housing solution, “which does not exist,” they lamented. .

The situation generated a new confrontation between Concello and Xunta. The municipal government recalled that after the fire an emergency device was put in place that has been in operation for more than six months, during which it has been paying for the accommodation and maintenance of the twelve families and that, after requiring the intervention of the Xunta, the conclusion was that “it does not have homes in the city, nor in the area to address the situation of these families.” The Council also stated that in response to this, a contract was signed with an entity specialized in acquiring housing for vulnerable people, which managed to relocate four families. However, he highlighted that the four coexistence units that are still in hotels rejected a housing solution offering minimal adherence to social monitoring to reverse their situation. Those affected denied having rejected any proposal “they did not make it to us, they just sent us a letter announcing that they would stop paying as of May 2,” they explained.

The delegate of the Xunta, Ana Ortiz, for her part, recalled that it is the Council that has the authority to care for those affected and that the Xunta already offered collaboration on two occasions to the Council, which was rejected. “I myself attended two meetings not only to offer help and financing, but also an agreement to collaborate,” she said while highlighting that the autonomous Administration was already caring for deceased minors and the family with aid such as Risga and once again reiterated her willingness to collaborate. Councilor Yolanda Aguiar came out against these statements, considering that “they are unprecedentedly harsh.” The councilor for Social Policy stressed that the Xunta with exclusive jurisdiction over protected housing “was absent for six months in which “The City Council paid for the lodging and maintenance of the families.” and asked “where is the collaboration proposal?”
