Forum Post: Occupy U.K., Does your government sanction selling a person's home if they have an unpaid credit card debt of 1,000 pounds?

I find the forced selling of a home because a debt collector has a judgement in excess of 1,000 pounds to be obscene.

Just the cost to move after the forced sale must equal several thousand pounds, no?

If nothing else, can't the occupy movement in the U.K. change this?

I've lost a LOT of respect for your movement if this forced sale is going on under your watch.

Whatever the banks want. Whatever is good for them. Screw the people.

Have you tried contacting Occupy London or another UK-affiliated Occupy group?

Their blog feed died about 7 to 9 months ago. Its a shame there wasn't more cross posting on the 175 occupy blogs that I searched one by one, found and listed for free with RSS feeds on www.occupynews.blogspot.com, all while I had the worst case of pneumonia I have ever had.

That's a shame, I'd have expected Occupy London to still be going strong. I hope you're recovering from your bout with pneumonia, it's nothing to take too lightly. Thanks for the link to the occupynews blog also. I've bookmarked it.

Thanks, the occupynews.blogspot.com has been up for a year and a half right now. The hit counter is visible, it has gotten hits, but really only a fraction of what it should have gotten if people saw it as the valuable tool to keep instantly updated on 175 occupy causes world wide.

I thought they would check in here from time to time. And yet, by going to www.occupynews.net (shameless plug), I guess I can find them in just seconds.

The thing is, the state just doesnt give a fuck. We saw, first hand, what happens when people try to restore some common sense.

That being said, this is a classic case of numbers. All it takes is 10% to decide to get involved, and its game over for the corrupt.

It may be as few as 2% that needs to get involved to make a difference.

I think you could be right about that.

One of the problems with industrialized, capitalist economies is that there is always someone primed to make money off of someone else's loss.

That may explain why it is hard to get even 2% mobilized.
