MAYBE This Will Get Their Attention: Ohio Rep. Marcy Kaptur Told Americans: “Be Squatters In Your Own Homes. Don't You Leave.”

MAYBE This Will Get Their Attention:  Ohio Rep. Marcy Kaptur Told Americans:

“Be Squatters In Your Own Homes. Don't You Leave.”



"The action I am taking is no more than a radical measure to hasten the explosion of truth and justice. I have but one passion: to enlighten those who have been kept in the dark, in the name of humanity which has suffered so much and is entitled to happiness. My fiery protest is simply the cry of my very soul. Let them dare, then,
to bring me before a court of law and let the enquiry take place in
broad daylight!"

- Emile Zola, J'accuse! (1898) –

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude
than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask
not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed
you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and
may posterity forget
that ye were our countrymen!”

-Sam Adams-

Facing Foreclosure? Don't Leave. Squat.
By Amy Goodman, Democracy Now!
In a recent interview, Ohio Rep. Marcy Kaptur told Americans: 'Be squatters in your own homes. Don't you leave.


Marcy Kaptur of Ohio is the longest-serving Democratic congresswoman in U.S. history. Her district, stretching along the shore of Lake Erie from west of Cleveland to Toledo, faces an epidemic of home foreclosures and 11.5 percent unemployment. That heartland region, the Rust Belt, had its heart torn out by the North American Free Trade Agreement, with shuttered factories and struggling family farms. Kaptur led the fight in Congress against NAFTA. Now, she is recommending a radical foreclosure solution from the floor of the U.S. Congress: "So I say to the American people, you be squatters in your own homes. Don't you leave."
