Occupy Atlanta to protest foreclosure auction

Posted: Updated:

Occupy Atlanta organizers are planning to protest the monthly auction of foreclosed properties Tuesday on the steps of the Fulton County Courthouse.

Each Tuesday, on courthouse steps across the state, banks sell foreclosed properties for pennies on the dollar.

"Occupy Atlanta will stand in solidarity with those for whom the banks, after receiving bailout funds from tax payers, refused to refinance or re-structure their loans," the group said in a statement.

Protesters are in the process of regrouping after being kicked out of Woodruff Park last week. Currently, their base of operation is a homeless shelter at Peachtree and Pine Streets in downtown Atlanta.
