How Singing Paused Foreclosure Court in Brooklyn (VIDEO)
Yesterday, we wrote about how nine people, including two lawyers, got arrested for temporarily halting the foreclosure auctions of three buildings in Brooklyn Supreme Court, by singing. Even though such auctions are open to the public (until the court officers tell you that you'll be arrested if you watch them in the public gallery, anyway), it's unusual to see video of such a proceeding. But our friends at Housing is a Human Right managed to shoot this video and smuggle it out.
The auctioneer song was written by Luke Nephews, one of the singers arrested, who composed it for this protest.
