The rally Monday afternoon by Occupy Wall Street Nevada County was modest but passionate. A couple of dozen people ((UPDATE: The Union article Tuesday claims “more than three dozen local Occupy Wall Street demonstrators …”)) carried signs protesting foreclosures in the county and nationwide. The rally was timed to correspond to Monday’s foreclosure auction on the steps of the Nevada County Courthouse.
Local Methodist minister Sharon Delgado introduced the event, followed by a couple of foreclosure victims telling their sad stories.
Other speakers invited ongoing participation in a local effort to support foreclosure victims.
