Wall Street protesters to occupy foreclosed homes | World news | guardian.co.uk
So, what do you guys think of them occupying foreclosed houses?Thousands of Occupy protesters across the US will occupy foreclosed homes today, in what organisers are describing as a "new frontier" for the movement.
In New York, Occupy Wall Street has teamed up with local activist groups to secretly occupy an empty home, and plan to hand the property over to a homeless family. Similar action is scheduled in more than 20 other cities.
Over the last month many occupations have been evicted from their encampments, as cities cracked down on demonstrations that had lasted for several weeks.
In New York occupiers plan to march to the closely-guarded location of their pre-selected foreclosed home, which organisers told the Guardian had been occupied overnight.
Are they sticking it to the man? Or are they inadvertently doing him a favor by temporarily preventing those houses from vacantly deteriorating while giving him a pretense to recoup lost assets by blaming/charging them for diminishing property values?
