Fighting Forced Evictions

Keep an eye out for the launch of a new tenant-led campaign in the weeks to come. East Bay Solidarity Network has connected with long-time tenants of a West Oakland home ready to stand up to the callous bully-tactics of a local Coldwell Banker broker.

After months of harassment, including fake eviction notices and physical threats, brokers from Coldwell Banker took their intimidation game one step further by breaking into the tenants’ home, rummaging through personal possessions, stealing many of them and leaving the rest in absolute disarray.

The tenants are interested in pursuing both legal and direct actions means to protect their home. So while we are working to file a temporary restraining order to keep these sharks away from their home, we will also work with them to develop a campaign to bring these bullies into the spotlight and confront them with the injustice of their actions. That’s where we will need your support.

Stay tuned in to our website, facebook and twitter accounts for upcoming announcements about this campaign.
