Hundreds Converge in Greensboro: a community facing a foreclosure crisis!

 by Victor Lopez, Intern - AFSC Office of the Carolinas 

GREENSBORO, NC - March 14--Drum beats and chanting filled the air as dozens of protesters marched from Washington Street to their final destination at The Carolina Theater, in Greensboro, NC on March 14, 2012.

There they converged with an eager crowd of supporters to celebrate the premier of a locally produced short film, “Let’s Lose Our House:  A Modern Foreclosure Tale.”

“Let’s Lose Our House: A Modern Foreclosure Tale”

Let's Lose Our House is a smart and funny look at the often misunderstood roots of the housing crash. This short film follows the "all American family" from buying their first home to seeing it foreclosed on and shows how banks and the large financial industry destroyed peoples lives through fraudulent practices. This film was produced by the Foreclosure Working Group of Occupy Greensboro, North Carolina.

Foreclosure on Bank of America

Friday, November 11, 2011 - 4:00pm

Bank of America is taking people’s homes through illegal and fraudulent foreclosure proceedings. At its core, the mortgage crisis was created by big banks playing fast and loose with our housing- we’re here to take it back and foreclose on the very institutions that would put us out of our homes!  Rally for a moratorium to end all foreclosures.  Bank of America on Green Valley Road.
