Monique White was on the verge of being evicted from her North Minneapolis home after U.S. Bank moved to foreclose. Occupy MN activists camping out in front of Minneapolis City Hall for over a month faced a showdown with Hennepin County, which wanted to evict them. So these two strange bedfellows teamed up. Occupy MN is now sleeping in White's house, and in tents in her front lawn, at 3310 N. 6th St. in the city's downtrodden North Minneapolis neighborhood. In doing so, Occupy Minneapolis instantly made itself more diverse, and more relevant. The largely white and college-educated demonstrators now stand with White and north-side African American activists, who have been hit harder by the home foreclosure crisis than other Twin Cities neighborhoods. In the eyes of north-side activist Anthony Newby, Occupy MN's movement just gained more credibility. And if U.S. Bank makes a move to forcibly evict Monique White, whose home foreclosed on Jan. 26 ? though she never received notice from the bank ? security will have to contend with dozens of activists as well. "The banks got bailed out," said White. "So why aren't (they) willing to work with homeowners and bail them out and rewrite their loans?"
