The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Occupy Oakland activists met this week to discuss not whether TO occupy empty homes, but WHEN and how to do it. One strategy the group is considering is contacting people who lost their houses to foreclosure and having them move back into the properties. Prior to the Occupy movement, there were some isolated cases in which homeowners who had been evicted moved back into their former homes months after the lender had taken title to the properties.
Calls urging protesters to occupy vacant homes have been circulating on Twitter, and members of the Occupy movement in various parts of the country have begun to respond.
The question is, will it do anything to solve the foreclosure crisis or simply cause more chaos?
