We will be planning direct action to save our communities! Demand a moratorium (halt) on all tax foreclosures and evictions. This is a State of Emergency! Under Michigan law, the Mayor, County Executive and Treasurer, and especially the Governor, have the authority to stop all foreclosures and water shut-offs to stop this disaster from taking place.
62,000 homes are scheduled for tax foreclosure on March 31, 2015. 37,000 are occupied homes.In the meantime, Lansing is sitting on $220 Million of Hardest Hit Homeowners funds, enough to pay all the delinquent property tax bills of occupied homes, stop the foreclosures, and provide funds to restore county and city services.Instead these funds are being given to Dan Gilbert to tear down homes, while the banks are completely left off the hook for the destruction they caused.
**THE CALL FOR A PEOPLES TRIBUNAL AGAINST POLICE REPRESSION AND VIOLENCE. Read Call.
In Harlem, the PPA & others will “walk in his footsteps,” meeting at 12 noon where Malcolm used to hold street meetings, and walk to the police precinct where he organized a protest against police brutality in 1957. For NYC details. Nationwide.
