Occupy Peter Briger – Fortress Investment Group Co-Chair – To Stop the Evictions and Foreclosures of the Nationstar 8

On September 9, 2012, Foreclosure and Evictions Fighters from the Nationstar 8 and their supporters from the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE), Occupy Bernal, Occupy Noe, and other organizations traveled to the Atherton home of billionaire Fortress Investment Group Board Co-Chair Peter Briger. After leafleting his neighbors about Briger’s activities with the corporate strategy of “garbage collection”, including foreclosing on people’s homes and evicting them, the protestors actually got to meet with Briger on his driveway. The Fortress Investment Group owns 77% of Nationstar, which acquired Aurora mortgage loans. Briger assured the group he would have Nationstar management look into the eight cases, including the upcoming evictions of Kim Mitchell and Denise Collins. Nationstar postponed those evictions and has been negotiating with the Nationstar 8 regarding potential buyouts or loan modifications.
