Last week my AlterNet colleague Sarah Jaffe moderated a panel on how activists are occupying homes to fight the ongoing foreclosure crisis. One of the panelists who spoke at that event was Nick Espinosa, an activist with Occupy Homes Minnesota. As it turns out, Espinosa's latest foreclosure battle is extra personal to him -- it involves his own mother's home.

Espinosa's mother, Colleen McKee Espinosa, has owned her home for 16 years. After she missed two mortgage payments last year, she tried to pay her outstanding balance to Citibank, but the bank said it had already put the house into foreclosure.
