Detroit’s Imperiled Home Owners and Small Businesses Demand Moratorium

Social Crisis in Detroit: Wayne County Facing Massive Tax Foreclosure Affecting Home Owners and Small Businesses

Despite claims of a “revitalized” city hundreds of thousands remain imperiled

A broad based coalition of Detroit organizations is fighting for a moratorium on property tax foreclosures where 62,000 homes, apartment buildings, small businesses and lots are slated for seizure by Wayne County. Another 15,000 are also scheduled for the broader county.

In addition, tens of thousands more will revert back to foreclosure since they were not able to keep up with payment plans established last year. The Wayne County Treasurer’s office has encouraged people to come forward and sign agreements to make payments in installments.

Nonetheless, in a desperate attempt to stave off homelessness, she signed an agreement with the Treasurer’s office to pay $500 a month until her delinquent property taxes are paid off.

      Indeed, however I have a sense that armed conflict is coming as institutions are committed to oppose the citizens and implement their new policies and system…
      Unfortunately militaries and police departments will receive bad orders and the transition will be made via a armed conflict against dissent and resistance.

      My wish is for that armed conflict to be unnecessary.
