Last month the Occupy Oakland movement announced its intention to occupy vacant properties. On Tuesday, Occupy Oakland was one of 25 local Occupy activist groups to observe a national ‘Occupy Our Homes’ day. Organizers say the movement is supported by thousands who will be standing up for their neighbors in a struggle “against a system that places financial gain above the human need for shelter.” Occupy groups from Atlanta to Brooklyn to California made it clear that this is only the beginning of their fight against foreclosure.
