The Mortgage Bankers Association is holding its national conference in San Francisco. The banks are responsible for creating the housing crisis that is forcing millions of people out of houses and apartments across the country. Despite receiving hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayers’ money to rescue them after their sub-prime and other high risk schemes collapsed, the bankers are opposed to reforms that would allow people to renegotiate their mortgages and stay in their homes. The banks and politicians—including Bush, Pelosi, McCain and Obama—blocked adding a point to the bailout bill that could have prevented millions of evictions. Join us to protest the bailout of the banks and big investors, and to say: NO to Foreclosures and Evictions—Housing is a Right!
