Socialist Alternative Candidate for Washington State House Jess Spear Joins SAFE in Seattle Eviction Blockade

(The following, photo’s included, were posted to Facebook.)

“From the SAFE in Seattle event page…”The Barton Family has lived in their West Seattle Home for 61 years.

The Bartons used to own a prosperous home remodeling business, but they were devastated by the recession, and the simultaneous heart attack and stroke that Byron Barton experienced as the Bartons’ home was being foreclosed on. Byron is a decorated Vietnam veteran who is wheelchair bound and barely able to speak. His wife Jean can only work part time for a homeless shelter because caring for her husband is a full time job.

The house was sold at auction to Triangle Property

Development—illegally so, according to the Bartons’ lawyer, who claims in a lawsuit that the proper procedures were not followed.

The Bartons have no place to go that can accommodate Byron’s medical needs, as well as their three children, who also help care for their father.

We are protesting Triangle’s efforts to evict the Bartons, as well as showing solidarity with the family’s legal challenge of the legality of this foreclosure.

Please join us in helping the Bartons save their home!”
