Foreclosure Auction Observation: Wear Red

February 22, 2012 in Uncategorized

Foreclosure Auction Observation: Wear Red The Foreclosure Working Group is carrying out a foreclosure auction observation this Thursday, February 23 at 9:00am. The purpose of this observation is reconnaissance for new people and organizations wanting to get involved in future disruptions. After entering one at a time, individuals who want to, will simultaneously reveal a piece of red clothing as a show of solidarity with those in the foreclosure process. Anyone who wants to get involved in further auction disruptions is strongly suggested to attend in order to become familiar with the process.

It is important to understand that these auctions are public affairs, meaning that anyone can show up, and technically we all have a right to be there. We might be asked to leave, however, because they may recognize those people from last week who disrupted the auction, and they might be freaked out by a sea of people wearing red. Keep in mind that this observation is designed as a no-arrest, low risk action. While we can’t make any guarantees that it will remain no-arrest, low-risk, people participating are advised to comply with all requests to leave, as well as to ignore any negative comments from bidders, which we are expecting to be more intense than at last week’s disruption. Please be prepared for both.
