Please sign and share our petition asking the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) to declare a holiday moratorium on foreclosures, auctions, and evictions from November 24, 2011 through January 1, 2012:
We'd like to get 5,000 signatures by Nov. 30!
Occupy Petaluma proposed the moratorium; our City Council passed a resolution supporting it: http://www.petaluma360.com/article/20111122/COMMUNITY/111129919
We are using the holidays to plan occupations of the front yards of those faced with foreclosure. Goal: embarrass the heck out of the banks, convince them to re-negotiate mortgages.
Occupy Petaluma is unique in having created a cooperative relationship with our City Council. Because we are not struggling to hold our ground, we are able to focus our energy on constructive actions that aid our community by stopping the transfer of wealth to the 1%. We maintain a small "longhouse" tent in a public park. No police, no arrests, no pepperspray, lots of community support. A highly recommended approach for a long-term occupation!
Love to all you Occupiers around the globe!
