Foreclosure Auctions Stopped—Again

There were four properties scheduled to be auctioned in Brooklyn last Thursday. Only one sale took place. Here’s why. According to Rob Robinson of Take Back the Land.org, the disruption caused total chaos. “The court officers don‘t know what to do when the singing starts.”


The members of Organizing for Occupation, Housing is a Human Right and Occupy Wall Street who took part in the Brooklyn action included many of those who executed and planned December 6’s Day of Actions. There’s more coming up, in what they're calling a “Spring Offensive.” Let’s just say, dormant they’re not!
