CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX)- The Occupy St. Louis protest movement made its presence felt, Wednesday, outside the Bank of America in downtown Clayton.

A group of about a dozen sang anti-Wall Street Christmas carols outside the bank, while Wendell Hodges of north St. Louis County was inside pleading his case.

Hodges claims paperwork errors made by Bank of America got him into foreclosure, and he could be evicted as early as December 26th, “To prevent it from going to foreclosure I could not bring the payments up current because you have to have an up-to-date payment amount. When I called to get that amount, they (Bank of America) hung up on me. They were looking at the wrong address.”

A representative from Bank of America made copies of Hodges’ documentation papers on site—and agreed to send them to the corporate level for consideration.

Community organizer Cathy de la Aguilera was a leader of the sidewalk protest, “Occupy St. Louis is committed to camping out on people’s lawns if they are being evicted due to an unfair foreclosure. We’re not going away. We’re going to be around until justice is done.”

De la Aguilera says the group Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) has a “foreclosure hotline” for those interested in finding out ways to contest their proceedings. It is 1-877-59-HOME-9.

    Liberal, neo-conservative, useful idiots and critics of Assembly, and frankly haters of truth and freedom, exist by feeding on the entrepreneurial, middle class.
    Which explains why the nation’s respect and admiration are with Occupy and with the Anonymous, Wikileaks and Ruckus brigades. Thank you heroes for all of your service, and a big hoo-rah on the Defecator udda Year award.
    For they know, proletariat’s bad children and parasites, sic Zionist apparachiks of the Fed, IMF and World Bank, will never admonish the Crony Capitalism feeding their addictions and narcissism. A special interest needful and earnest of all the hearty, steamy excrement patriots can provide. Sh!t and p!ss on, noble flea-baggers, lest the streets flow with blood.
