Bank Protest In Springfield Will Be On March 6

On March 6 at 6:30 p.m. in Springfield, there will be a protest against a multi-billion dollar corporation that is trying to force a poor family out of the family’s home. The protest will be in front of the DeCaro family home at 152 Lucerne Road.

Freddie Mac corporation is a mortgage bank in Virginia. It wants to evict the DeCaros. Freddie Mac’s C.E.O. is Charles Haldeman. He was paid about $6 million last year. American taxpayers gave the company tens of billions of dollars in recent years.

Freddie Mac was the focus of a scandal last month. It was detailed in a report on Democracy Now headlined "Taxpayer-Funded Freddie Mac Caught Betting Billions Against Struggling American Homeowners." The report is at:

The March 6 protest is being organized by a group called Springfield No One Leaves www.SpringfieldNoOneLeaves.org.

Arrests for non-violent civil disobedience were planned at that protest. There are no such plans for the March 6 protest.
