“OCCUPY FIGHTS FORECLOSURES” MARCHES IN THE 2013 ROSE PARADE TO SEND A LOUD MESSAGE TO THE BIG BANKS WHO BANKROLL THIS PARADE

LOS ANGELES –December 31, 2012 -- Wells Fargo and many other big banks sponsoring the Rose Parade are guilty of grossly inflating the value of homes, originating fraudulent loans, illegally foreclosing on homes, and falsifying IRS tax forms. Bank of America and Wells Fargo are among the largest Mortgage Lenders in the country and thousands, if not tens of thousands, have fallen victim to its mortgage practices and those of other banks who, in sponsoring this parade, hope to come out “smelling like a rose.”

"We at Occupy Fights Foreclosures have chosen to take a stand against the illegal practices of these lenders -- instead we stand with homeowners fighting to keep their homes. It has been estimated that approximately 4 million foreclosures are slated for 2013.

As we step into a new year, we also welcome the new Homeowner’s Bill of Rights-a new tool in helping homeowners fight back against the fraud. Occupy Fights Foreclosures was on hand to help in getting that bill to pass, and we will be on hand to help with the implementation to help the thousands of families who have been left alone without representation in this foreclosure fiasco.

“Occupy Fights Foreclosures” will be there among all the floats sponsored by the Banking Communities outlining themselves as an indispensible part of the community. Their unofficial float in the Rose Parade will serve as a reminder to the thousands of homeowners who are holding on to their homes that they are not alone, and it will serve as a reminder to the banks of the thousands of homeless families that they have removed from their homes leaving them displaced. They’re fed up with these banks stealing the American Dream.

Occupy Fights Foreclosures, is dedicated to end the bank abuse against homeowners, the families, and the communities in which they live. "I have worked closely with dozens of home owners. I have seen widespread abuse by financial institutions that continue their financial terrorism against working families," says Carlos Marroquin, "Unless we resist, abuses will continue."
