United States anti-foreclosure action, 2011

This 2011 video from the USA is called Occupy Movement Occupies a Foreclosure Auction with Anti-Foreclosure Team.

Occupy Our Homes. J.A. Myerson, Truthout, 7 December 2011: “Yesterday, no one had lived in 702 Vermont Street for three years…. the Brooklyn neighborhood where foreclosures are five times more frequent than in the rest of the state. Today, Alfredo and Tasha and their son and daughter moved in, with the help of a number of friends whom they’d never met… brought together by Occupy Wall Street for a national day of action to promote foreclosure resistance, an event kicking off a project they call Occupy Our Homes”: here.

Michael Moore | The Winter of Our Occupation. Michael Moore, MichaelMoore.com: “We are not even twelve weeks old, yet Occupy Wall Street has grown so fast, so big, none of us can keep up with the hundreds of towns who have joined the movement, or the thousands of actions … that have happened. The national conversation has been irreversibly changed…. People are no longer paralyzed by despair or apathy…. The winter gives us an amazing opportunity to expand our actions against the captains of capitalism”: here.

Unemployed Confront Congress at Take Back the Capitol. Dave Johnson, Campaign for America’s Future: “Today thousands of unemployed people and others came to D.C. to tell Congress and ‘K Street‘ that they need jobs not cuts; that we should tax the rich, and that unemployment benefits must be extended before they run out at the end of the year….This is not the OccupyDC group, but it is supportive and very much like the Occupy group, with ‘Mic Check‘ and ‘We are the 99%‘ and ‘Banks got bailed out, we got sold out’ chants going on everywhere”: here.
