I've written about some foreclosures fights in Minnesota in recent weeks, and this video is an update on the progress of those actions.

I've written about some foreclosures fights in Minnesota in recent weeks, and this video is an update on the progress of those actions.

Filmmaker Peter Leeman's original subjects approached Occupy Minneapolis and asked for help with their struggle. Occupy Homes MN, a sub-section of Occupy Minneapolis that deals exclusively with protecting homeowners, took up the cause of these folk and organized a direct action.

In this video, dozens of people march to the house of U.S. Bank CEO Richard Davis to demand justice for homeowners. Its inspiring to see this call for US Bank to help their own clients pay their mortgage and keep their houses. "We bailed them out with our tax dollars when they were in trouble at the start of the housing crisis they created," said Monique White, who was featured in "Monique's Story". "Now we need them to work with us to help stabilize our communities, instead of tearing them apart."
