"I go to court and fight hard every single day. It doesn’t matter if I were to be successful every single case. It would be a drop in the bucket of the tens of thousands of people that are being forclosed and thrown out of their communities.
"The only way this is going to be stopped is by collective action. By letting the banks know we’re not going to tolerate it any more.
"By letting the legal system know we’re not going to tolerate injustice, and by letting our legislators know we’re not going to take this any more."
— Lawyer for homeowners, Vanessa Fluker
