As the government continues to bailout the mega corporations responsible
for this economic crisis- by taking our tax money, without our
permission, and giving it to the wealthy- some organizations and
individuals are moving their own bailout.

Since October 2007, Take Back the Land has been identifying vacant
government owned and foreclosed homes and liberating them by moving
homeless people into people-less homes- without permission from the
government or the banks. This is the real bailout.

So, as this country celebrates the Pilgrims- who took over land without
permission from the owner- we must think about using land to benefit
people, not just corporations. We assert that our right to housing
supercedes the corporate right to profit.

Below are three stories about the Take Back the Housing campaign by Take
Back the Land, including a news video from Tuesday, November 25. You can
