  •  unfortunately their tactics only delay foreclosure (0+ / 0-)

    not avoid it. it's kind of amateurish, at best.

    •  well... (0+ / 0-)

      there is at least this example...may be others...

      " In a tangible victory by the Occupy movement, Occupy Atlanta has successfully helped save an Iraq War veteran from foreclosure.

      Activists began occupying Brigitte Walker's home on Dec. 6. By the end of that first week, JPMorgan Chase, which owns her mortgage, began discussing with the activists and Walker the possibility of a loan modification. Chase's modification offer became official Monday morning. The offer will result, Walker tells The Huffington Post, in hundreds per month in savings.

      Before Occupy Atlanta set up its tents on her lawn, Chase had set an eviction date for Jan. 3. Now, Walker, who lives with her girlfriend and her two children, will get to stay in her Riverdale, Ga. home.

      'I strongly believe Occupy Atlanta accelerated the process and helped save my home," Walker says. "If it had not been for them standing up, I probably wouldn't be having this happy ending.'...."

      Chase Bank had offered to negotiate with Mrs. Katy and her family for a loan modification... This past week Mrs. Katy decided to take the loan modification offered by Chase!!! Another fight taken public and another win...

      •  gosh, do you just parrot ows press releases? (0+ / 0-)

        or do you actually do any objective analysis?

        an amateur solution is the only possible product of a leaderless ambigous movement that refuses to take a political stand.
