National Day of Action! December 6th: Occupy Wall Street Goes Home
Cleveland, Events Add comments

On December 6th Occupy Wall Street will join in solidarity with a Brooklyn community to liberate a foreclosed home.

At 1pm, we are gathering at Pennsylvania and Livonia in East New York, Brooklyn (3 train to Pennsylvania or L train to Livonia) to march through a neighborhood on the front lines of the economic crisis.

Along the way, we will take stock of foreclosed properties for the growing Occupy Real Estate Listing Service, so families can reclaim foreclosed homes in their neighborhood — and connect with allies in their communities to defend the human right to a home.

The march will end at a house warming and block party for the family and their neighbors. Bring housewarming gifts and food to share!

This action is part of a national kick-off for a new frontier for the occupy movement: the liberation of vacant bank-owned homes for those in need.

The banks got bailed out, but our families are getting kicked out.

Millions of Americans lost their homes in the Wall Street recession and one in four homeowners are currently underwater on their mortgages. The 99% is baring the brunt of a crisis caused by Wall Street and big banks.

That’s why, all across the country, Americans have begun standing up to the banks that are trying to evict them. It’s already happened in Atlanta,Cleveland, Miami, San Francisco, Minneapolis, and cities and towns across the country. Now, it’s happening in Brooklyn.

Across the country, people are making eviction defense at foreclosed properties, doing takeovers of vacant properties by homeless families, and taking foreclosure action disruptions. Today, actions will take place in more than 25 cities across the country.

Soon, they will be happening everywhere.

so many great slogans on the video -- the "Welcome to America" one is pretty powerful.

On the occupation of foreclosed homes -- are the previous owners getting to move back in? That would be justice, in my mind. How can Occupy find the previous owners to give them first rights to move back in, as opposed to other homeless people?
