Bertina Jones' Home Saved

The Huffington Post and Washington Post reports:

WASHINGTON — Occupy Our Homes-DC, a housing-focused group related to Occupy DC, scored a victory in its goal of saving a Bowie, Md., grandmother’s home from eviction, reports The Washington Post.

An hour after some 50 protesters began demonstrating outside of Freddie Mac’s downtown D.C. offices on Monday, the company announced that it was working to allow Bertina Jones to keep her home.

Freddie Mac spokesman Brad German downplayed the influence of the Occupy DC rally, telling the Post“the company decided to work with Jones because of the merits of her case.””
