to Take Back the Land
After banks get billions in bailout money and families suffer from the housing crisis, thousands of foreclosures and new condos sit vacant. What are communities doing about it?

ONE DC and Empower DC invite you to the Take Back the Land Movement: a presentation by Max Rameau. The event includes presentations by ONE DC and Empower DC followed by a presentation and book signing by Max Rameau of Take Back the Land. The event is scheduled for Friday, May 7, 2010 at the Sankofa Bookstore, 2714 Georgia Ave., Washington, DC and begins at 6:00PM.

The TBtL is a network of organizations devoted to community control of land and elevating housing to the level of a human right. In pursuit of these objectives, TBtL is coordinating a May 2010 Month of Action in which organizations "liberate" vacant government owned and foreclosed homes and move families into them or defend families from eviction in the first place. Successful actions have already taken place in Portland, OR and Toledo, OH (see Takebacktheland.org for details) and more are planned in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Chicago, Madison, WI and Washington, DC. TBtL is supports both ONE DC and Empower DC.

Max Rameau is a part of the Take Back the Land Movement, whose work has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Associate Press, USA Today, CNN, ABC News, Democracy NOW! and the latest Michael Moore movie, Capitalism: A Love Story. He will talk about and sign his book Take Back the Land: Land, Gentrification and the Umoja Village Shantytown. This is Max's second book signing at Sankofa Bookstore.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit takebacktheland.org or http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=107632045947324
