Occupy Activists Help People Keep Their Homes

 

via Think Progress:

An hour after Occupy DC protesters organized a rally outside Freddie Mac’s offices in downtown Washington, DC on behalf of a Maryland resident facing eviction, the mortgage giant announced that it had developed plan to keep her in her home.

Occupy protesters across the country have been trying to find a purpose after being evicted from encampments in public parks, and a growing number are finding success with targeted actions like this. Occupy Nashville helped saved the home of civil rights activist Helen Bailey, while activists in Detroit have helped saved at least five homes, and protesters in California camped outside a former Marine’s home to help him fight foreclosure.
