Red House on Mississippi

A family fought against displacement in Portland, OR. The community supported the Red House with an eviction blockade.

Law enforcement arrived at the house because protesters were trespassing on the home’s yard, and camping on adjacent properties.

The owners challenged the foreclosure because a moratorium was in place as shown in this video clip:

The area was in conflict causing many fights, noises, and vandalism. A lot of people were camped at the property for days. You can not camp anywhere because there are laws that state you are not allowed due to public safety. Here is a drone photo showing all the tents:

There were 652 homes in foreclosure in first half of 2022 in Oregon.

There are 1,887 unsheltered people living in Portland.

The Kinney family has appealed to the US Supreme Court.
