Atlanta: Update on Chris Frazer & her familyOccupyOurHomes on May 13, 2012
Tim Franzen of Occupy Our Homes Atlanta has an update on Chris Frazer and her family's situation following the brutal and inhumane 3am eviction by 40 Dekalb County sheriffs:
Today, on Mothers Day, several of us came out to visit Chris Frazer, her mom Daisy, and Grandson Malachi at their new house, which is temporary. We brought Mothers Day flowers and offered our labor as there's still much moving around that needs to be done.
It's been just over a week since the Frazer family was evicted at gunpoint by Sheriff Thomas Brown and 40 of his officers at 3am. The trauma that the unprecedented action caused the Frazer family undeniably lingers strong. It was a tough scene to observe for anyone, but one can only imagine what it's like having you doors knocked in, physically forced out, and see all you belongings carelessly tossed onto the lawn.
Given the circumstances the Frazer family is making the best of the situation. The family's first priority was getting everyone under the same roof again.
The Frazer family has a lot of needs as they try to rebuild their life and keep up the fight for their home. You can see what they lost (and had stolen) during the sheriff's raid at the American Friends Service Committee/Atlanta.
The family isn't done fighting for their home.
This Thursday(5/17) at 7:30pm there will be a candlelight vigil in front of the home(3662 wellhaun rd, Decatur) Chris Frazer's family was evicted from in the middle of the night at 3am. We invite all who are concerned with foreclosures, evictions, and housing in general to stand with Chris Frazer and her family.
