MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The group Occupy Minnesota stepped up their efforts Saturday to prevent foreclosures.
Occupy Minnesota set up a fence around an entire south Minneapolis neighborhood block and they call it a foreclosure-free zone.
They want to save the home of Bobby Hull, a former Marine and Vietnam War veteran. He has lived in his home since 1968.
Recent health problems caused Hull to fall behind on his mortgage.
Hull and his family will be evicted this month if the bank doesn’t modify his loan.
“They have been calling me, trying to negotiate,” Hull said.
Organizers say Bank of America can start the foreclosure process after Feb. 17.
