Supervisor John Avalos Tries to Stop Foreclosures with New Legislation
|God damn you, Wells Fargo|
Occupy Bernal, the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, as well as the Occupy SF Housing Coalition are launching the "Occupy the Auctions/Evictions direct action campaign," asking the 99 percent to help them stop the dozens of foreclosure auctions that take place on City Hall steps each weekday.
Tomorrow, Occupy Bernal and other groups will take their complaints to City Hall, where protesters will demand city officials immediately place a moratorium on predatory bank evictions, fraudulent foreclosures, and foreclosure auctions. And they are anticipating a happy ending, as Supervisor John Avalos, who represents the Excelsior neighborhood, is expected to introduce legislation that will bring unfair foreclosures to a halt.
"The banks have torn apart our communities and caused a financial and health crisis by unjustly foreclosing and evicting our neighbors from their homes," said Molly Martin, an organizer with Occupy Bernal."
If you are pissed about foreclosures, join these protesters on the steps of City Hall tomorrow at noon.
