Joseph lies on a mattress outside a branch of Caja Madrid, part of the Bankia group bailed out by the Spanish state, during a protest against evictions on the Plaza Celenque in Madrid on October 25, 2012. A man in Spain hanged himself shortly before bailiffs came to evict him, police said today, prompting angry protestors to call him a victim of predatory mortgage lenders. Protestors demonstrating in the capital against evictions outside the office of Caja Madrid -- a major mortgage lender now part of the Bankia group -- held a minute's silence for the man, whom they named as Jose Luis Domingo.
