There’s good news coming out of Minnesota where a homeowner was saved from foreclosure thanks to the local Occupy Movement. Just days before Ruby Brown’s home was about to be auctioned off – activists with Occupy Our Homes Minnesota converged on her property and held a series of demonstrations to raise awareness and keep Brown in her home. And it worked!
Last week – Brown was told by Bank of America that they would renegotiate her mortgage. The physical occupations were broken up several months ago – but the Occupy Movement isn’t dead – and it’s helping struggling homeowners and indebted students all around the nation.
