Activists and homeowner evicted from foreclosed house by SWAT team

http://www.examiner.com/article/activists-and-homeowner-evicted-from-foreclosed-house-by-swat-team

Sahara Donahue and activists were evicted by the Idaho Springs Sheriff department around 3 p.m. on October 30, 2012. Yesterday, Donahue went to US Bank's main office in downtown Denver and spoke with a VP about getting a 60 day extension before being evicted from her home. US Bank declined to extend the eviction date and forwarded her to Vericrest Financial.

Activists from the Colorado Foreclosure Resistance Coalition (CFRC) and Occupy Denver stayed with Donahue in her home to help prevent her Tuesday morning eviction. A live stream by odarren documented much of Donahue's eviction. On Tuesday around 1 p.m. a truck arrived with a roll-off dumpster, arrived at Donahue's house. After the situation was explained to the driver, he explained before leaving that he had his home foreclosed on two years ago and did not want to be part of Donahue's eviction.

Later in the day a white van parked in front of Donahue's house with 8 to 10 people who were sent to clear out her house. After being stopped by a blockade made from fallen trees and non-violent resistance from activists who were occupying the home, the moving van left. It was reported that at around 3 p.m. the SWAT team arrived, forcing activists and the media to the ground. 3 arrests were made but soon released with citations. Sahara Donahue is currently seeking a place to rent and to secure her belongings.

(Slideshow of pics and a link to the archived livestream at the link. I was on Twitter watching these photos come in and I have to say the general response was both anger and disbelief. Most foreclosures are fraudulent and banks are working on tools to make foreclosure ever easier. It is painfully obvious to see that the police and sheriffs are the banks' private army.)

1. Sahara Donahue better check her Voter Registration. They foreclose so they can disenfranchise voter

The Banks would be broke if they had to mark to market. These foreclosures are just another step to the police state.
