Court Support for Mike and Antoine, Occupy Homes residents resisting eviction:
- Performance (Les Miserables re-written by Mike for Occupy Homes)
- Eviction Defense
With the help of Occupy Homes, I have moved back into my grandmother’s foreclosed house with several other people experiencing housing instability. We have cleaned the house up and created a neighborhood watch to take care of other families experiencing eviction on our block. We now live in three of the foreclosed homes on our block. The neighbors are happy to see us investing in our community and keeping it safe instead of allowing the banks to trash the neighborhood.
We believe that US Bank and Bank of America have already done too much damage to our communities. We don’t need another house sitting vacant on 14th Avenue S. We demand that US Bank forfeit the home to a community non-profit to be used for long-term low-income housing. It’s time for US Bank and Bank of America to stop taking from our communities and start giving back.
