Occupy breaks locks takes back home in response to Bank of America breaching their promise to not evict families during the holidays
LOS ANGELES - On December 14, 2012 Bank of America breached their promise to our country that there would be no evictions during the holidays and evicted Soledad Corona, a single mother with a teenager, at gun point. In response Occupy activists help the mother to take back her house because Bank of America has failed to provide an explanation of this breach to their representative.
Soledad will then be joined by community members and barricade themselves to demand attention and justice to their case until the home is returned to the rightful owners: the Corona family.
Occupy Fights Foreclosures, a subcommittee of Occupy LA, is dedicated to end the bank abuse against home owners, 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."
Casita Sol Corona (Lincoln Heights at 2200 Daly St. Los Angeles, CA 90031) is the home of Corona family, who got wrongfully evicted by Bank of America's illegal practice called dual tracking and broken promise during the BoA's own Holiday Moratorium.
