OPINION: From Occupy Wall Street To Occupy The Living Room

As thousands of patriots around the nation get forced out of their occupations – they’re setting up camp on the lawns of homes on the verge of foreclosure, to save the families from getting kicked out too. The coalition of activists spearheading this movement known as “Occupy Homes” have been successful in many cases. 

In California – Fannie Mae was forced to hold off on an eviction when patriots held a vigil outside the home.
In Minnesota – a woman is crediting the Occupy Homes movement for buying her critical time to move out before her home was foreclosed on.  And in New York – the movement occupied a boiler room in an apartment building until the landlord agreed to provide adequate heating to the tenants living inside.

From protecting foreclosure victims – to convincing people to move their money out of big banks and into small credit unions – to changing the dialogue in the media from the debt crisis to the jobs crisis – to getting even members of the Republican Party to talk about wealth inequality – the success of the Occupy movements so far have been substantial.
