Potluck Cookout to Support Keith Sadler and Toledo Foreclosure Defense League

Addendum, May 7: the arrest of Keith Sadler and his supporters has brought about a change in the planned potluck dinner. It has been relocated to the United Christian Fellowship Community Center in Bowling Green, OH, which is located at 313 Thurston St. Do NOT go to the foreclosed home, as you will likely face arrest for trespassing.

Passing along information from a flyer forwarded to me by supporters of Keith Sadler and the Toledo Foreclosure Defense League. There will be a cookout this Friday, May 7 at the house in which Keith and six activists are barricaded.

The sponsors of the cookout encourage people facing foreclosure (or those who have been evicted from their homes) to bring their stories and perhaps a dish to share. The potluck dinner will be from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the house, which is located at 5947 Fremont Pike in Stony Ridge, OH. If you are traveling via Interstate 75, exit at US-20/23 and drive east about six miles. The house is located at the corner of Fremont Pike and East Broadway.

And for all you angry folks who have posted on this blog or emailed me your ravenous desires to see Keith and his supporters dragged off to jail and/or mercilessly hammered by the Wood County Sheriff's S.W.A.T. team, maybe you will get lucky that day.

Or perhaps you might spend a few minutes and talk peacefully with everyday people who are concerned about the American foreclosure crisis.

It's up to you; just remember I am only passing along information on this blog, and that my own political views do not necessarily coincide with those of the Toledo Defense Foreclosure League. I have mostly been writing about this topic because it interests me on a human level, and if you have issues about something one of the activists said, you might take it up with them.

Of course, it is much easier to fire off a bunch of anonymous violence-laden rantings as a member of the American Keyboard Commando Brigade than to actually take a drive and meet these folks face-to-face, or - God forbid - you start your own blog and publish your words like a person with some cajones.
