This in via e-mail from the Foreclosure Defense League, they held a press conference on Sunday May 2nd, at 6:00 p.m., in addition to the below release, FOX Toledo reported on this story (link):
On Monday May 3rd, Keith Sadler of Stony Ridge will be evicted from his home. But unlike many in a similar situation, Mr. Sadler intends to resist his foreclosure and stay in his home illegally.
“I am resisting this eviction through non-violent civil disobedience,” states Sadler. “It’s time to make a stand against this corrupt system.”
Alongside Sadler stands a group of community members from the Toledo Foreclosure Defense League, a Northwest Ohio coalition of housing activists. TFDL is also joined by the national group Take Back the Land based out of Miami, Florida.
Sadler, along with the Toledo Foreclosure Defense League, will be peacefully occupying the foreclosed home by sealing themselves inside until the foreclosure is called off and a moratorium on all foreclosures is enacted.
“Housing is a human right. While banks are being bailed out, people are being thrown into the streets. The time has come to take back our land and our communities,” said Sadler.
Following Sunday’s press conference May 2nd at 6pm, activists will lock themselves inside until their demands are met.
