Occupy Bernal

When a bunch of our neighbors started loosing their houses to foreclosure, due to predatory bank loans, Beth got together a group of seasoned activists that started an Occupy Bernal Housing and Foreclosure group. (We are based in Bernal in San Francisco.) It caught on like wild fire. There are now weekly meetings, tutorials and actions. One day we spent the afternoon informing neighbors of the new group and getting them organized.¬† If all neighborhoods could organize such groups, the big banks would have to help folks refinance with payments that don’t balloon and that¬† they can afford. Then we’ll be organized to help with more environmental issues as well. It was just before Valentine’s Day so we handed out schmaltzy Valentines too, and spread the love.
