As Village Board kicks Occupy New Paltz out of park, Mayor West goes to bat for them

Village kicks out Occupy New Paltz, as they vow to continue…

Saw this in the Record today>

NEW PALTZ — The Village Board has pulled the plug on the Occupy New Paltz encampment at Hasbrouck Park. But the handful of men who sometimes stay there say that’s OK, they’ll make do without electricity

Group vows to go on.. this is of significant, as they are comrades in our fight for a more equitable nation and people.

Months ago, the OWS movement decided that ‘local’ occupations would be necessary to bring local politics into the fight. I think our MoveOn council can identify with that.

As p.s. to this..I think local initiatives, ‘ordinances’ (yes, Padma, I have read Paul Cienfuegos’ article, and totally agree)….are the way to go.

Bets Against Homeowners Must Stop, Freddie Mac Was Told

Bets Against Homeowners Must Stop, Freddie Mac Was Told

A great ProPublica article, by Jesse Eisinger

Freddie Mac agreed last month to stop making new bets against American homeowners after its regulator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, raised concerns, according to a statement the agency issued late Monday. Freddie, the taxpayer-owned mortgage giant, still retains $5 billion worth of such bets.

This sunday MoveOn Sullivan at Shop Rite plaza in Liberty!!!

This Sunday, Febeuary 5, we will rally in front of the Liberty ShopRite on Route 52 from noon to 1:00.  We’re moving around the county more, trying to reach more people and broaden the conversation.

This month, MoveOn is focusing on the big banks, their fraudulent practices that led to the housing crisis, and the investigation that Obama promised in his SOTU address.  He has appointed Eric Schneiderman to lead the investigation, and we want it to be a wide, deep and thorough one.  We do not want the banks to be let off the hook, and we expect that there will be prosecutions where they are warranted.  Furthermore, so many people have been so badly hurt by the actions of these banks, and we want immediate and meaningful relief for the homeowners who are underwater because of them.
So, maybe it will be 45 degrees and balmy on Sunday, or maybe it will be 17 degrees and blowing a gale, but we’ll be out there, with extra signs, and we hope that you can make it too.  As always, you can call me at 292 4895 if you need more information, and you can also call Bob at 826 5925.
Thanks,
Kathie
