The ‘Save Greeks’ houses from foreign vulture Funds’ campaign, which is hosted on Avaz platform, was launched by Greek lawyer Ariadne Nouka as a response to the recent provision included in the omnibus bill voted by the Greek parliament, where even non-performing house loans of a first residency worth under 140,000 Euros could be sold off to vulture funds.

The statement-petition is addressed to the Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos and Economy Minister George Stathakis and reminds the Greek government of a similar opportunity given to the Cypriots house owners.
