Rochester, NY - On Thursday, September 26, 2013 the 72 hours expired on the eviction notice from MidFirst Bank for 394 Webster Ave., Rochester, NY. The City Marshal said he'd would be coming by to execute the eviction on the 26th so MidFirst Bank could profit off another foreclosure and eviction. However the Woods Family, neighbors, Take Back the Land Rochester, Metro Justice, Band of Rebels and other community supporters had another idea. The Woods family and their supporters began an Eviction Blockade of the Woods family home on Webster Ave. What started as a front lawn blockade with Home Defenders chained to the porch and forming a chain around the front yard became an energetic celebration of resistance that spilled into a blockaded Webster Ave. that even the police wouldn't cross.
