Fannie Mae Don't Take My Home Away

Video

See video

On Monday, Sept. 10th, 2012 Occupy Our Homes and many other Housing and Homeless advocates in the Southeast kicked off a nationwide protest against Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac here in Atlanta. Fannie and Freddie hold 60% of American homeowners' mortgages. After being bailed out in 2008 with billions of taxpayer dollars, Fannie and Freddie showed their appreciation by foreclosing and evicting thousands of these same taxpayers. Fed up with seeing their neighborhoods destroyed, friends forced into homelessness, and the wealth of their communities transferred to Wall Street, people are now fighting back. This film is part 1 of our coverage of the victims of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac standing up and demanding justice for their families, friends and cities. It runs 51 minutes.
