Photo Blog: JP Eviction Blockade 6/14/2012
Activists from City Life Vida Urbana, Occupy Boston, and a MA State Representative blockaded a JP home on Thursday 6/14/2012 in hopes of negotiating foreclosure. Things didn't turn out quite the way folks expected, when MA State Rep. Liz Malia was arrested for participating in the blockade along with five others.
