Occupy Atlanta Helps Save Iraq War Veteran’s Home From Foreclosure

In a tangible victory by the Occupy movement, Occupy Atlanta has successfully helped save an Iraq War veteran from foreclosure.
Activists began occupying Brigitte Walker’s home on Dec. 6. By the end of that first week, JPMorgan Chase, which owns her mortgage, began discussing with the activists and Walker the possibility of a loan modification. Chase’s modification offer became official Monday morning. The offer will result, Walker tells The Huffington Post, in hundreds per month in savings.
Before Occupy Atlanta set up its tents on her lawn, Chase had set an eviction date for Jan. 3. Now, Walker, who lives with her girlfriend and her two children, will get to stay in her Riverdale, Ga. home.
“I strongly believe Occupy Atlanta accelerated the process and helped save my home,” Walker says. “If it had not been for them standing up, I probably wouldn’t be having this happy ending.”

Fucking brilliant. YES.

The name of the officer who pepper-sprayed those students at UC Davis is John Pike. joanofarch: Spread the word. Make phone calls. Write letters. He and his fellow officers held student’s faces in place while they sprayed them with pepper spray in their eyes and throat. I want everyone to know who this guy is.

Dear Tumblr People,
Take a couple of seconds and read what is written below, and take a couple seconds off drooling over hipsters and gorgeous boys, and do this for me.
I Want This Picture To Have As Many Reblogs/Notes as Possible.
This is my cousin’s grandma Maria Trovato. Though she wasn’t a grandma to call my own, she treated me as if i were hers. She battled things everyday, and cancer was one of them. Though on Friday November 4th 2O11, she lost her last battle. No words could sum up how I feel. No words can sum up how much i love and miss her. but I love her so much.
Rest in Paradise Beautiful, I Miss You So Much.
Maria Trovato; January 2nd 1942 - November 4 2O11.

you must be heartless not to reblog this.

This got to me, omg rest easy.
