Miami foreclosure protesters cleaned up an abandoned property in Liberty City and took the home’s garbage to a Bank of America branch downtown, MSNBC reported. “Banks maintain foreclosed properties in white neighborhoods, why can’t they do the same in black communities?” said Trenise Bryant of the Miami Workers Center. “It’s bad enough these big banks put families out of their homes, now they just let the houses sit there bringing down the property value for everyone else in the neighborhood.” The group of protesters placed the trash, which included garbage bags and tires, at Bank of America’s branch on West Flagler street.
