Comments Off on #OCCUPYYOURHOME: CUAFE


On December 12th, 2011 we spoke to Jorge Ortiz, activist for Communities United Against Foreclosures and Evictions, a grassroots organization embracing a variety of tactics in the struggle for universal housing. CUAFE is dedicated to doing everything it can to legally save the homes for people who are facing foreclosure, yet it also embraces direct-action in order to “take back the land.”

Jorge Ortiz goes into tactics, both legal and not so legal, (like turning the “criminal” occupation of an abandoned home into a “civil” case), squatter’s rights, and much more practical know-how for the aspiring home occupier.

If you or a loved one is facing foreclosure, looking for a home to occupy, or just want to know, tune in here to learn more about CUAFE and their tactics, and how you can get involved in the “struggle for community control of resources.”
