Occupy Our Homes Atlanta continues fight for veteran's home

Posted: Updated:
AVONDALE ESTATES, GA (CBS46) -

Occupy Our Homes Atlanta is not giving up the fight to win back the home of a Desert Storm veteran.

The group held a vigil outside Mark Harris' now bank-owned home in Avondale Estates. 

Harris was evicted Friday morning and arrested for trespassing on Saturday.

He was in negotiations with his lender when he was evicted.

"I'm living in a veteran homeless shelter, that's just not right, that's just not America. We can do better than this. We can do better than this," said Harris. 

The event attracted people concerned about the struggle for housing justice across the state.

Avondale Estates police were also there.
