The Occupy Our Homes campaign kicked off last Tuesday when hundreds of people, including activists, neighborhood residents and a couple of City Council members, marched through a neglected Brooklyn neighborhood to open a foreclosed house to a homeless family. Alfredo Carrasquillo, the father of that family, spoke about the event and the future of OOH with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

Carrasquillo, his children and their mother risk arrest by moving into the East New York home, which is owned by Bank of America. –ARK
