Foreclosure and Monopoly
The history of a game and its war on oppression

The game of Monopoly was invented in 1904 by feminist radical Lizzie Magee to teach the public about the cyclical nature of foreclosures, and to suggest
a remedy!

After screening a short, made for TV film about the history of Monopoly,
Occupy Bernal will demonstrate the game’s original alternate anti-foreclosure rules, and describe the relevance of the game’s message to our housing efforts today!

This program is part of Occupy Bernal strategy to build a profound understanding of the foreclosure debacle, leading to City and State-wide policy change.
