It's been nine weeks since Mark's eviction, and the ninth week of his vigil. Since Fannie Mae suddenly stopped negotiating with Mark, Congress has shut down the Federal Government leaving only so-called "essential" services operating. Fannie Mae, operating under the Federal Housing Finance Agency, continues to perform foreclosures and evictions.
As a result of the Government shut down our national parks are closed, over 80,000 Americans are unpaid, new social security recipients are not receiving promised and needed funds, yet Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac continue put people like Mark Harris out of their homes.
Today our message was clear; we will not go away until Fannie Mae meets with Mark Harris to discuss a way to get him back in his home. Atlanta doesn’t need another homeless veteran.
