Squatters

New, 2 comments

People that need houses and empty houses no one wants. Kinda makes sense to put them together, no? Some Detroit community organizers are actively encouraging squatters to move into foreclosed homes. They have lists of these properties, and when people in need come seeking help, they're told to pick a home and just move right in. Sure, you can get all up-in-arms that it is illegal, but we'd rather see it organized in some form because squatting is going to happen anyway. [My Fox Detroit]
