Occupy Our Homes takes the Occupy movement's general critique of inequality -- something often expressed in abstract charts and tables -- and makes the issue concrete.

Think about it - OCCUPY=FREEDOM, and really isn't it time to cast off these leaches and parasites that contribute nothing but take everything?

This is one of my favorite facets of being in Occupy.
And having alot of knowledgeable people willing to work on behalf of the owners of these homes doesn't hurt either.
Not all real estate agents and mortgage people are crooked, hence so many out of work and more than willing to donate their time to help navigate the mountains of paperwork many distressed homeowners are faced with,
My own personal area of expertise is plopping my butt down in a front yard in solidarity, but i have found that even that can be noble action in it's own right,,,no gesture is to small or meaningless when you're fighting injustice in any form, Thanks Cal

What sense did it ever make to foreclose on mortgages and then let the properties lie derelict and and fall into ruin. Certainly the banks could have always found a way to save the country from this horrible mess.
