Occupy Homes: Protesters Target Foreclosures on Dec. 6 ‘Day of Action’
Occupy Homes, an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street, will protest in foreclosed and vacant properties in around 25 U.S. cities, on Tuesday’s “Day of Action,” promoting what organizers call the “basic human right of housing.”
Along with Occupy Wall Street protesters, the movement will bring together affordable housing activists, tenant groups, homeless advocates and other civic groups, who will march on one of the most visible legacies of the economic crisis.
Robert Grodt and Kaylee Dedrick, the 25-year-old woman who became the face of the Occupy Wall Street Movement when she was pepper sprayed by NYPD, welcomed their newest addition at the Albany Medical Center.
And so, a new generation is born. Welcome, Occu-baby!
