Occupy Wall Street is taking it to the streets of areas hit hard by foreclosures around the country today. In New York, protesters are taking a tour of foreclosed homes in East New York, which will ultimately end with them “occupying” a property in an attempt to keep its residents from being evicted.
Check out the livestream here. Protesters are setting up at the house right now, reportedly at 702 Vermont Ave. . Maybe their next target could be one of the foreclosures processed by infamously shady New York foreclosure mill the Steven J. Baum firm.
