Occupy Fights Foreclosure Moves Family Back Into Home for the HolidaysShab Bashiri on December 24, 2012
Earlier this month, Soledad Corona and her teenage daugther were evicted from their Los Angeles home, despite Bank of America's commitment to hold off on evictions until after the holidays.
Yesterday, activists with Occupy Fights Foreclosure joined the Corona family and moved them back into their home.
From the press release issued by OFF:
On December 14, 2012 Bank of America breached their promise to our country that there would be no evictions during the holidays and evicted Soledad Corona, a single mother with a teenager, at gun point. In response, Occupy activists will help the mother to take back her house because Bank of America has failed to provide an explanation of this breach to their representative.
Soledad will then be joined by community members and barricade themselves to demand attention and justice to their case until the home is returned to the rightful owners: the Corona family.
Occupy Fights Foreclosures, a subcommittee of Occupy LA, is dedicated to end the bank abuse against home owners, the families, and the communities in which they live. "I have worked closely with dozens of home owners. I have seen widespread abuse by financial institutions that continue their financial terrorism against working families," says Carlos Marroquin, "Unless we resist, abuses will continue."
