Protestor Who Disrupted DeMarco Hearing, In His Own Words

You've probably heard that several underwater homeowners were arrested for disrupting Tuesday's House Financial Services Committee hearing at which acting director Edward DeMarco was the sole witness. (You can see the video here if you haven't.)

I got the chance to speak on camera with the first protestor to speak, Ramón Suero, as he waited in the hall to enter the hearing. 



At the end of the video you can also see Caylin Crawford of Occupy Our Homes MN, Robbie Clark of Causa Justa Just Cause, Roberto Garcia-Ceballos of Springfield No One Leaves/Nadie Se Mueve, and Dominic DeSiata of City Life/Vida Urbana being arrested. Crawford spoke after Suerto. The others merely held up signs. All of them walked out cooperatively and politely and did not resist arrest.
