There have been over 4,000 home foreclosures in Oakland since early 2007 and home foreclosures are currently the leading cause of evictions.
In a huge victory for the tenants of the California Hotel, Alameda County Superior Court Judge Richard Keller ruled to keep in place a temporary restraining order against Oakland Community Housing Inc. (OCHI), stopping the corrupt nonprofit housing developer from evicting the tenants or shutting off the utilities at the historic hotel.
If HUD grants the Oakland Housing Authority permission to dispose of 1,615 public housing units for a nominal sum or for as little as $1 per parcel, 1,554 low-income families will be displaced from Oakland's public housing. Those families include 3,885 poor people - mostly children, young mothers, the aged, disabled and infirm.
