Occupy Justice Department: Foreclosed Homeowners Arrested Protesting U.S. Refusal To Prosecute Big Banks

WASHINGTON — Owners of foreclosed houses were arrested during a protest outside Justice Department headquarters Monday, where they demonstrated against prosecutors’ failure to take legal action against bankers.

Seventeen former homeowners were arrested, according to Washington police. The demonstrators were seized outside the Justice Department building as they sat in groups behind a police barrier, singing protest songs largely invoking language from the Occupy Wall Street. They blocked traffic in front of the Robert F. Kennedy building beginning at 2 p.m. Five hours later, Constitution Avenue remained blocked from 9th Street to 10th Street. Many of the protesters who were not arrested had set up tents outside the building and said they planned to spend the night.

Those arrested were charged with “incommoding,” or obstructing traffic, according to Ann C. Wilcox, a lawyer representing the protesters.

The protest was organized, in part, by Occupy Homes, a grassroots organization that grew out of the Occupy Wall Street demonstration to support homeowners facing foreclosure. Other grassroots organizations, including coalitions from as far as Washington state, California and Florida, also joined.

    They need to change the Logo on their Building. It should read: “DEPARTMENT OF INJUSTICE”

    As we should all know by now, this is about the banksters and their license to steal. Now, YOU can do something to help reign-in these felons without fear of retribution. Please call your senators and congress people telling them to support legislation to re-instate Glass-Stegall. This is something everyone can do without fear of being labled an extremist or a threat to government. Glass-Stegall helped keep the banks in check for 66 years before it was repealed,(Thanks, Bill Clinton) paving the way for what the banks have become today. However, the momentum is shifting with more and more congresspeople from more and more states initiating their own bills to reign–in the out of control banksters. Now, in a pivotal act indicating a major shift in the political capital, similar legislation has been proposed in the senate. With our help, this nail in the coffin of the runaway banksters can be pushed to fruition.
