As the foreclosure crisis festers, Take Back the Land continues to liberate vacant foreclosed homes. The movement to elevate housing to the status of a human right is picking up steam as other organizations- at least 14, according to Michael Stoop of the Washington DC based National Coalition for the Homeless (http://www.nationalhomeless.org)- execute liberation or defend the right of people to stay in their homes. Two organizations worth paying attention to include Picture the Homeless in New York City (www.picturethehomeless.org) and City Life/Vida Urbana in Boston (http://www.clvu.org).
To find out more about the movement, please watch the recently aired NOW program about Take Back the Land and the housing liberation movement:
