Eviction Watch Tomorrow in Rochester

McGriff Eviction Blockade to Go ForIMG_20151130_192329ward
On Wednesday, February 17, 2016, at 9:30am Take Back the Land Rochester will be holding an eviction blockade at 618 Cedarwood Terrace, Rochester, NY 14609.  If the Monroe County Sheriff tries to execute the bank eviction some supporters are prepared to risk arrest in order to keep families in their homes and change the for-profit system of mass displacement.

Take Back the Land Calls for Greater Community Control Over Land and Neighborhoods

Take Back the Land Rochester is calling on 1) the Monroe County Sheriff, Fannie Mae, and MidFirst Bank to withdraw the evictions of these families and 2) Fannie Mae and the Federal Housing Administration to donate these homes to the Ujamaa Community Land Trust in Rochester and 20% of all their foreclosed homes to nonprofit community controlled institutions across country to ensure affordable and stable neighborhoods.
