Embittered homeowners and activists packed the yard of a Bank of America executive on a recent weekend, and they brought their bullhorn.
Members of the National People’s Action community group and the SEIU came to the porch steps to tell their stories of foreclosure and bureaucratic indifference, and advocate for financial reform.
In this video, a woman tells how she got a phonecall about a foreclosure on her house 30 minutes after she found out her son died in a car crash. The caller didn’t care about that, but did want her to know that it was a debt collection call and it could be recorded for training purposes.
The video, which grabs you in the chest, is worth a gander. Whether you agree or not with their point of view or tactics, it’s a slice of what’s going on right now.
