VICTORY: Occupy Homes MN Saves US Marine from Foreclosure

Occupy Homes MN has declared victory in their fight to save US Marine Bobby Hull's family home from foreclosure. Following a two-month campaign of public pressure bringing media attention to Hull's case and the bank's unwillingness to negotiate, Bank of America has come forward with an offer to Hull to renegotiate his mortgage so that he and his family can keep their home.

"I stood up and told the banks I wasn't leaving until they negotiate, and I won! This means the world to me and my family, but we aren't satisfied yet. We will continue fighting until all our neighbors and Americans across the country get the same deal that I did," said Hull.

Since December 6th, when Hull initially declared his intent to stay in his home, his story has made international, national, and local news.

In an email following Hull's initial declaration to stay in his home, a representative with Bank of America stated they had no responsibility to negotiate with Bobby stating: "Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the house was purchased by U.S. Bank."

"Thanks to the campaign of public pressure waged by neighbors and supporters, Bank of America reversed their previous position and came to the table to negotiate with Bobby. There's no doubt that this is an exciting victory for Bobby and his family. But if the banks can negotiate with Bobby, there's no reason they can't do the same for the millions of families in this country facing foreclosure," said Occupy Homes MN organizer Ben Egerman, adding, "and we won't stop until they do."

This video reminds me of how much I love my country.... 

‎"Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life?"
