I think this is the kind of direct action that could give this movement a lot of momentum and a little more focus. It draws direct attention to issues of homelessness and identifies capitalism as being directly at fault for the fact that there are more than enough resources for everybody, they’re just being hoarded for profit. Not only that, but people who have been foreclosed on, or are in danger of being foreclosed on, will have an easier time identifying with this movement if, before, they believed it to be made of drum-circle-playing hippy college students.
Of course, in keeping with the “the movement is the message” theme, there is a lot of potential in creating a framework for mutual-aid-based housing networks at a grassroots level.
