Court day for arrested IWW/FSAO member today

Today, Tuesday Nov 8th 2011, a Chicago IWW member and member of Four Star Anarchist Organization will be in court for an action they took with Southsiders Organized for Unity and Liberation (SOUL) (http://www.soulinchicago.org/) to protest the Mortgage Bankers Association of Chicago. Operating on the assumption that mortgage bankers are in part responsible for the current mortgage crisis that is affecting the lives and threatening the homes of thousands of Americans.   SOUL organized a group to claim space in the Hyatt so that their demands might be heard. This group set up a home complete with television and roof over their heads in order to underscore the fundamental nature of their protest: a widespread threat to where people live based on overvalued mortgages and a depressed housing market. More information is available at http://www.soulinchicago.org.

The court location is 2452 W. Belmont 2:30pm.
