D-Day is coming...Occupy our Homes

DECEMBER 6th - National Day of Action
The OccupyWallStreet movement and brave homeowners around the country are coming together to say, "Enough is enough." We, the 99%, are standing up to Wall Street banks and demanding they negotiate with homeowners instead of fraudulently foreclosing on them.
Everyone deserves to have a roof over their head and a place to call home. Millions of Americans have worked hard for years for the opportunity to own their own home; for others, it remains a distant goal. For all of us, having a decent place to live for ourselves and our families is the most fundamental part of the American dream, a source of security and pride.

In 2008, we discovered bankers and speculators had been gambling with our most valuable asset, our homes--betting against us and destroying trillions of dollars of our wealth. Now, because of the foreclosure crisis Wall Street banks created with their lies and greed, millions of Americans have lost their homes, and one in four homeowners are currently underwater on their mortgage.

Not only do we have thousands of people without homes, we have thousands of homes without people. Boarded-up houses are sitting empty--increasing crime, lowering the value of other homes in the neighborhood, erasing the wealth that lifts families into the middle class.
For more information:

A growing number of homeowners & supporters are standing up to the banks & demanding that the banks correct the mortgage principal to fair market value. 
 I will:
Resist attempts by the FRAUDsters (banks & servicers) to "steal" our homes. 
Take necessary action(s) to Support American Homeowners. 
• If they attempt to foreclose, I will not go
• If they attempt to evict, I will not go
• If they attempt to "Steal" my neighbors home, I will stand with my neighbor in solidarity
I will:
- sign petitions
- make phone calls
- contact caring - local and national organizations
- join efforts of local and national organizations that help with foreclosure defense & to help stop evictions
- help spread the word

OCCUPY Minneapolis formed a human chain around Sa'ra Kaiser's foreclosed home, preventing the officers from boarding it up, and ultimately forcing the police - who had no legitimate legal pretense for preventing occupiers from being their in the first place - to give up. US BANK wanted to evict another homeowner and blight another house and neighborhood.
