Springfield No One Leaves/Nadie Se Mude is part of a national movement of grassroots groups rising up against Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, and weâ€™re heading to NYC on September 12th to join forces with groups from across the region for a major action. Protests are also planned in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta at the regional offices in those communities. All the rallies will demand principal reduction and that President Obama use his power of recess appointment to get rid of Ed DeMarco. We will also demandÂ that:
- Fannie & Freddie put an end to all no-fault, post-foreclosureÂ evictions
- Fannie & Freddie sell back to residents or a non-profit after foreclosure at realÂ value
- Fannie & Freddie donâ€™t sell to hedge funds or other investors who caused the problem in the first place, but instead turn over properties to community control, or sell back at current market value toÂ occupants
Led by courageous people who are fighting Fannie & Freddieâ€™s foreclosure and eviction procedures, weâ€™re stepping up to tell DeMarco and the others that weâ€™re not moving!
We will go down and come back in the same day. To join us in New York; call Sue Gamelli at 413-885-0658 or 413-283-5168.Â
