Minnesota’s Ground Zero for Unjust Evictions
Alejandra and David Cruz have lived in their home for seven years. But because of a glitch on the PNC Bank's auto-billing system they have fallen into foreclosure despite being willing and able to pay their mortgage. Since then, Occupy Homes MN turned the house into a social center to protest the unfair eviction and Alejandra Cruz has put together a petition to negotiate the foreclosure, garnering more than 200,000 signatures already.
