Anti-Foreclosure Activists Marched in Front of Bank of America



ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – Anti-foreclosure activists marched through downtown Tuesday ending at the Bank of America on Market Street.

About 50 activists from Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) came to show their support for the Royston’s, a South St. Louis family who has been fighting to keep their home.

After weeks of community pressure Bank of America offered the Royston’s a modification loan based on the interest and penalties accrued during a time when the bank was refusing to take payment from them.

The Royston family and MORE activists demanded Tuesday a loan modification that doesn’t include those penalized payments.

“We want an offer from the bank that will keep us in our home,” says Aimee Royston. “We want the same consideration from the bank that we gave them when they were bailed out with our tax dollars.”
