On Saturday June 9th Occupy NOLA will be holding a People’s Foreclosure on Chase Bank.
WHAT: People’s Foreclosure on Chase Bank. In solidarity with families across the U.S. resisting foreclosures and evictions, Occupy NOLA is calling on JPMorgan Chase Bank to cease and desist from foreclosing on homes in Louisiana for the duration of the present economic crisis. A spotlight has shone on the nefarious deeds of Chase and other big banks since the birth of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Throwing millions of working families out of their homes is class warfare against the 99%. Bring signs, banners, folding chairs, and barbeque grills to visually demonstrate the ways in which the banks are exploiting our system and profiting from human need.
WHERE: 2200 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA. This branch of Chase Bank is open until 1pm on Saturdays.
WHEN: Saturday, June 9, 2012 at 11:30am
During the first quarter of 2012, 4,552 Louisiana properties were targeted by foreclosure-related notices. These ranged from an initial notice of default to repossession by a lender. The lion’s share of these foreclosures were properties being seized from the 99% as result of the economic crisis imposed on them by the investment practices of the 1%.
So come, carry your signs, bring chants, banners, balloons, and most importantly yourself, your friends and family, and anyone you know who is or may be facing a foreclosure.
For more information contact OccupyNOLA (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mike Howells (email@example.com).
This action will be discussed at the next General Assembly of Occupy NOLA on Tuesday, June 5 at 7 pm at 2735 C Toulouse Street (just off of N. Broad Street in Mid-City). All are invited to attend.
