Standing Up

I was pretty energized by this video from a recent Bill Moyers Journal. It’s about how people in Boston are organizing with the support of an organization called City Life/Vida Urbana to fight against impending foreclosures and evictions of their homes.

I thought the video did a great job of showing people learning about their legal rights, working to help each other out, and fighting against the deceit of the banks that got them (and us) into this financial crisis in the first place. It’s good to see people saying “we won’t let you take our neighbor’s home” instead of just letting the corrupt lenders throw them out because they think they have no other choice.

The Bill Moyers page also has some good resource links for people who want to get involved, or who are in danger of losing their homes right now. Click for those.
