February 17th was supposed to be the last day homeowner and Marine Bobby Hull’s would live in his childhood home. Thanks to hundreds of phone calls, emails, marches and civil disobedience as part of a campaign waged by Occupy Homes MN, the bank has called Bobby and have stated their intent to negotiate a modification of his loan that would keep he and his family in their home! Instead, of moving out on this day, we’ll pitch a tent and a stage in front of Bobby’s home where friends, neighbors and hundreds of supporters will celebrate that the bank has called Bobby to attempt to negotiate, and the eviction has been halted for now.
This is amazing news, but the fight is not over until they sign on to a final agreement so we need all of your support now more than ever to pressure the bank to ensure Bobby gets to stay in his home.
Here are two actions you can take to support Bobby this week:
When: Event from 4-8pm (press conference at 7pm)
Where: 3700 Block of Columbus Avenue South, Minneapolis (in and outside of Bobby’s Home)
Facebook Event (Invite friends and share!): http://www.facebook.com/events/265449893525741/
