Not active in supporting your neighbors who are facing homelessness because you think Obama will magically make everything all right?
Give up that Ghost.
We need grass-roots action NOW, and YOU need to make it happen.
Every Monday morning, foreclosed homes are being auctioned at the Multnomah County Courthouse (1021 SW 4th Ave.). This is being done in spite of the fact that the bankers and their political flunkies are obstructing attempts to require mortgage mediation with the victims of the financial scams that threaten to harm all working class people. (Contact your state representatives about support for SB 628, the pre-foreclosure mandatory mediation bill that the bank fraudsters are attempting to destroy, and see: link to blog.affil.org).
Join Oregon ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) on the day following Mother's Day (Monday, May 11) at 9 a.m., in the parking lot between 3rd and 4th Ave., to prepare for a morning of obstructing the obstructors. We will attempt to prevent the auction by shouting down the auctioneer, by educating passers-by, and by any other means necessary.
Wear red and bring signs, if you can.
Contact ACORN at 503-764-9780, stop in at 5112 SE Powell, and visit www.acorn.org. Your neighbors need you, and you may need them to protect your own home. Come to meetings with your own ideas for direct actions, or JUST DO IT.
