An Occupy Atlanta call to action:
On December 6, 2011 members of Occupy Atlanta began occupying the front lawn of the Pittman family home at 404 Glen Iris Dr. Eloise Pittman was a retired school administrator who had lived in her home in the Old Fourth Ward since 1953. Over the last decade however, Ms. Pittman became the victim of multiple predatory loans, leaving her with a mountain of debt that she counldn’t possibly keep up with. She never told her family about her financial struggles, and passed away on November 29. Now her family is being faced with eviction at the hands of Chase Bank. We have tried to push Chase to make a deal that will keep the Pittmans in the home that they grew up in and deserve to stay in, but they won’t budge. They would rather have this greiving family out on the streets, or turn a quick buck on the property, than find a solution to let them keep their home. We won’t stand for that. Join us on January 27 as we demand that Chase Bank find a way to keep the Pittmans where they belong, in their home.
January 27th Rally begins at the Pittman home at 404 Glen Iris Dr., at 3:00pm followed by a march to Chase Bank.
