‘Occupy Our Homes’ Protests Try To Save Homeowner
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Bobby Hull lost his home after trying to modify his mortgage when he became unemployed.
The activists are not saying the Bank of American foreclosed his home illegally, but they want the bank to show more compassion to homeowners like Hull.
“Occupy our Homes” protesters were out at Hull’s residence on Tuesday as it was one of several rallies that took place all across the country. Hull and his family are scheduled to be evicted from their property in February.
“I think this is a good start. I’m not the only one out here who is losing their house and being foreclosed on. I don’t think anybody should lose their house in the United States. The banks have been bailed out, and then they still took our houses,” Hull said.
Officials with Bank of America said it did everything it could to help Hull save his home.
