Police evict over 300 from gov't-owned properties, Flores
The Federal Police followed a court order and began the eviction on two properties belonging to the IVC City Housing Institute in the Flores area of Buenos Aires, which had been occupied by persons from the Illia neighbourhood and the villa 1-11-14 slum.
Carlos Beraldi, from Police Station 34, told a national news agency that both properties "will be the subject of an eviction order" as prosecutor Mauro Tereczko had asked after the claims filed from the IVC Institute, which planned to build a food kitchen and open Chilavert street through a plan for urbanizing slums.
The two properties are on the Agustín de Vedia and Chilavert streets, where some 300 people, many of them from Bolivia, want to build homes and have already subdivided the properties.
Neighbours from the Illia neighbourhood demonstrated against the people who have taken over these properties, claiming that they want to preserve one of them where a small park is located, along with a soccer field.
