Detroit: Occupy Homes update


From Jerry Goldberg:

Victory in Detroit. As a result of a demonstration today at her home, Citibank stopped the eviction of Detroiter Kyra Williams. After backing down on an agreement to let Ms Willimas purchase the home she had leased before her landord was foreclosed, upon learning of today’s demonstration Citibank reversed themselves on the eve of Ms. Williams’ eviction and allowed her to purchase the home for less than the previous agreement. They directly expressed fear of the Occupy movement. The demonstraton was organized by the Moratorium Now! Coalition and Occupy Detroit. A press conference was also held at another family’s home in metro Detroit, the Henrys, to announce plans to stop their evictiion by Fannie Mae (the federal government) scheduled for January 2.
