News from the Occupy Our Homes front.  In the last week in Atlanta, supporters held a candlelight vigil for retired police detective Jacqueline Barber who has been fighting cancer at the same time she has been fighting eviction by the banks.


And, the Stranger's Slog reports the Seattle Occupy offshoot, SAFE (Standing Against Foreclosure And Eviction) now staging its first eviction blockade at the home of ironworker Jeremy Griffin who was ordered out by the banks by midnight last night.

Occupiers included 86 year old Dorli Rainey who was, to the nation's horror, peppered sprayed in the face by police in November.  In the following video, Dorli Rainey applauds Concord Elementary students who come outside to chant their support for the blockade.
