Eviction Blockade at Cabrini Green (Chicago) Tuesday

17 November 2009

Note: AEC coordinator, Ashraf Cassiem, will be with the Chicago AEC supporting the anti-eviction action inspired by our work in Cape Town

Friends: Please spread the word far and wide. We are kicking off the Chicago Anti-Eviction Campaign this Tuesday with an eviction blockade to stop Lenise Forrest and her family from being evicted from Cabrini Green for owing back rent. She had a payment plan under previous management but the new management has refused to recognize it and is trying to put her out on the street. She is appealing the eviction but the Sheriff is still scheduled to evict her Tuesday morning.

Please come out and support! If you can’t come please donate food, hot chocolate, or money. A press release and a flier are attached. Here’s the 4-1-1:

What: Human blockade to stop Sheriff from carrying out eviction
When: Tuesday Nov. 17th – 9:00am
Where: 933 N. Cambridge St., Cabrini Green Row Houses (just north of Chicago Ave, a few blocks East of Halsted)
