Seven people were arrested at Rosemary Williams’ home on Friday as the police raided her home, using pepper spray, according to a press release from the Poor People’s Human Rights Campaign (PPHRC).
Rosemary Williams has been living on the same block near 32nd and Clinton for 55 years, but was foreclosed upon in March. Williams took GMAC to court, but lost, and after several failed negotiations, was ordered to leave by the Sheriff’s department, who boarded the house last month. Hours after her house was boarded, Williams’ supporters broke back into the house, and she has been living there since. MORE
