From Occupy Our Homes Atlanta:
Back in October, retired police officer and cancer patient Jacqueline Barber joined up with Occupy Our Homes Atlanta to fight against her impending eviction by US Bank. Her story inspired and outraged people all over the world and spread far and wide. Thousands of people signed petitions, made phone calls, marched on the bank, and showed their support for Jacqueline and her family.
After US Bank pawned off the responsibility of her mortgage to GMAC, and after pressure from supporters, Jacqueline started what she thought was the negotiation process with GMAC. They sent out an appraiser, and the Barber family has been ready and waiting to buy back their home from the bank once and for all. Now after weeks of waiting in what in they thought were good faith negotiations, it appears that the banks aren’t living up to their word.
