Occupy Movement Targets Home Evictions in U.S. Day of Action

Occupy Wall Street protesters marched through a neighborhood of New York’s Brooklyn borough to claim a foreclosed property for a local family as part of a nationwide day of demonstrations against home seizures.

Behind a banner that said “Foreclose on banks, not people,” about 300 people made their way to a house on Vermont Street in Brooklyn’s East New York section, where Alfredo Carrasquillo plans to live with his wife, Tasha Glasgow, and their two children. The property had been vacant for three years and is owned by Bank of America Corp., according to a statement by Occupy Wall Street.
