Occupy Bernal's Education workgroup hosts its first long range movement-building program: "Crisis of Credit."

In this 90 minute evening, the connection between speculation and real estate is explored through the excellent 12 minute YouTubed animated video, "Crisis of Credit."

Occupy Bernal has concentrated on the emergency of 80 plus neighbors facing foreclosure. We've postponed a number of auctions, and our primary focus will remain with slowing the foreclosures and then securing a city-wide moratorium on foreclosures.

However, looking towards systemic change, Occupy Bernal's Education Workgroup is producing a series of workshops on SPECULATION. It was the extension of credit where no credit was due that produced the foreclosure morass. In this first workshop in our systemic change series we employ "Crisis of Credit" to gain a sufficient common understanding of the roots of the real estate collapse that we can look to exploring solutions to the wrong sort of speculation, the sort that careens out of control and produces nothing.

Join Bernal neighborhood folk who have been in the forefront of combating foreclosure in SF in this FREE screening, teach-in, and break-out discussion format program.

A preliminary explanation of the video's basic terminology will be followed by screening of the 12 minute video. Then discussion of the film in small groups will be followed by a brief focus session.

A HUD certified foreclosure intervention counselor with the Mission Economic Development Association will be on hand to assist those in foreclosure peril desiring assistance.

We encourage you to preview the video "Crisis of Credit" on YouTube
