After meeting with the occupy protestors who took control of his house and giving them an ultimatum, pay for the house or leave, single father Wise Ahadzi was told that they would not pay for the house. Occupiers have continued making renovations, including knocking down walls and moving his furniture downstairs.
They have ‘given’ the house to a homeless man, Alfredo Carrasquillo, 27, who was expected to move in with his two children ages five and nine along with their mother, is a criminal justice organizer for a New York grassroots organization called the Voices of Community Activists and Leaders. A group that works with the Occupiers. The family is only planning on using the house occasionally.
“Why can’t you fight for me?” Mr Ahadzi says he asked them, himself being a victim of the foreclosure crisis after losing his job in 2009 and struggling to keep up with his mortgage payments. But as they explained to him through his attorney, he doesn’t ‘quality’ for their help. “They said they couldn’t help me,” Mr Ahadzi said, angrly. “I’m trying to get my house back, and they’re trying to take it from me”
