Call Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf at 415-396-7018 and ask that he cease the foreclosure process of disabled activist Ana Casas Wilson. December 6, 2011 was a national day of action by Occupy Our Homes to fight unfair foreclosures. Filmed & edited by John Wellington Ennis.

2. I remember hearing in the 70's that if a squatter got into
your home, without breaking in, that they could not be forced to leave. I remember news stories about people coming back from vacation and finding a family living in their house, and they could not legally get them out, because the people did not break in. I wonder now if there was such a squatters law and if it is still on the books?

3. I love this new branch of the movement!
If these foreclosure action teams can hang together, this type of action can be a major force for change.
