Posting on Facebook, Stop Desnonaments Mallorca said police officers had been heavy-handed in their handling of the situation, claiming some of the activists suffered bruises and sprains when they refused to move away from the front door to the flat.
According to reports the pensioner was paying €220 a month to rent the apartment, but it has now been sold and the new owners are aiming to rent it out for considerably more.
