Organizing for Occupation: Video from Inside the Foreclosure Auction

On October 13, members of O4O (Organizing for Occupation) teamed up with Occupy Wall Street protestors to successfully block a Brooklyn foreclosure auction!

At least 7 confirmed arrests were made inside the courtroom; possibly 12 total. The auction was successfully stopped. All arrestees have been released with minor charges.

We stand in solidarity with all of those who are suffering from predatory lending and unsound banking practices in single family homes.

    Your activism brought me and my partner to tears. We are both in our 50s and have not seen that level of heart-lead, non-violent civic engagement since we were children in the 1960s. We are African-American and Dr. King is a personal hero of both of us. He would be so PROUD of you!

    Thank you from the bottom of both our hearts.
