One hundred days ago Morgan Stanley was threatening to send in the sheriffs and a moving truck the next morning to evict Jodie Randolph from her house in Alameda, California.

One hundred days ago it looked like Jodie Randoph, grandmother and cancer patient, might be out in the street.

But it was also one hundred days ago that the Occupy Oakland Foreclosure Defense Group swung into action, invading Morgan Stanley’s Oakland offices and calling for anyone and everyone to show up at 9:00 AM the next day to prevent the eviction.

The sheriff never showed up.

Since that time the OOFDG and friends have been maintaining watch on Jodie’s house, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. If anyone were to attempt a move on the house calls would go out to hundreds of supporters.

That hasn’t yet been necessary.

In December we marched on Morgan Stanley’s San Francisco’s offices, and on January 14th, Jodie sat down for the first time with representatives of Morgan Stanley to work out a loan modification.

Just a few days ago, all the documents and papers were submitted, and we await some sort of response from Morgan Stanley’s decision makers.

It’s not over ’til it’s over, but one hundred days into it

JODIE IS STILL IN HER HOME!

The Occupy Oakland Foreclosure Defense Group would like to thank everyone who has contributed to Jodie’s cause. Those who rallied at her house when the call went out on Day 1, those who have brought food to the house, those who have sat through numerous shifts at Jodie’s house, those who have tweeted and facebooked, those who have commented in support, and everyone else who has helped in any way. Countless person-hours have gone into this effort, including more than an entire year’s worth of labor keeping the house guarded.

If you are local and would like to join the effort, or help fight for others defrauded by the Big Banks, contact us here.
