WHY: In solidarity with the National Day of Action against Wells Fargo (held in the end of April) Occupy Fights Foreclosures calls on allies in Southern California to join this #MayDay2014 protest in downtown Los Angeles. If we do not keep taking to the streets, the big banks will be able to convince everybody that things are just fine. We make the banksters uncomfortable when we show up on their doorstep, and it is important to keep the pressure on and let them know we haven’t forgotten their crimes against the people!

ORANGE COUNTY SHERIFFS EVICT FAMILY OF STAGE FOUR CANCER PATIENT WITHOUT NOTICE AND IN VIOLATION OF A COURT ORDER -- LOCKOUT PROVIDES COVER FOR ATTORNEY TO ENTER HOUSE AND STEAL ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS
Family has to re-home 6 pigmy goats.
Family was not allowed to get cancer medicines or medical documents related to chemo therapy.
Sheriffs had earlier promised the family they would take no action after seeing admissions in court of forging notes and bid-rigging and would refer case to the DA
ORANGE COUNTY, June 25, 2013— Orange County Sheriffs today evicted — without notice — the family of a stage four cancer patient with 6 pigmy goats in unincorporated Orange County near Orange, in violation of a court order.
Days earlier, the same sheriff who was carrying out the eviction, L De Ande, had promised the family no action would be taken, had acknowledged that the entire foreclosure was based on forgery, and had promised to investigate and refer the case to the DA.
The OC Sheriff's Special Investigations Unit, when contacted, confirmed that no eviction should have taken place because their investigation was not complete.
The lockout gave cover for the attorney for the foreclosing entity, Jennifer Needs — who created the assignment on the deed of trust and created the LLC that foreclosed on the house — to enter the house and remove boxes of original documents that the family were not able to store because the sheriffs gave no notice.
The family, Norman and Helen Koshak, has been hit with two major illnesses in the past few years — Norman is recovering from a brain tumor and Helen, owner of a knitting business who grew up on a farm in Michigan, is fighting stage four breast cancer. Because they are vulnerable with medical debt, the family was targeted by predatory "hard-money" lenders who pretended to give them a loan, then forged notes and broke property transfer laws to steal the property.
The family's attorney, Lenore Albert, has evidence that the entity that foreclosed on the property has no ties to the property, paid the auctioneer to rig bids, forged the note and was told how to forge balloon payment documents by PLM Lender Services, one of the largest loan servicing companies.
