TV Ads Try to Ignite Foreclosure Resistance



The “Occupy Our Homes” movement has taken its anti-foreclosure message to the airwaves. The protesting group, part of the Occupy Wall Street movement that has a network of participants across the country, announced it has launched a national television ad campaign to speak out against foreclosures and show struggling home owners how they can fight against evictions.

In recent months, the group has staged “sit-in” protests at properties of home owners facing foreclosure.

The TV ads direct viewers to the Web site for a field manual on how to “start an occupation,” which details how home owners can protest a foreclosure using sit-in strategies.

The ads are set to appear on networks like CNN, FOX, MSNBC.
