EMERGENCY ACTION: Stop Unlicensed Warehouse/Mover from Selling Alton’s Stuff!

Calling All Foreclosure-Fighters!!!

They are trying to make an example of Alton King again. The statute requires that a warehouse cannot auction your possessions for at least 6 months after they take them at a supposed eviction. It has been only 2 & 1/2 months! 

Please come protest THIS Saturday, 7/1/23 at 8:30 am, 460 Race St., Holyoke, MA.

We have exposed to the Western Housing Court that the moving/warehouse company that claims to have Alton King’s possessions has never even applied for a license to be a moving company in Massachusetts. They have never sought a license and do not have insurance on the building that they have kept Alton King’s possessions in.

So, the Western Housing Court judge was told that this business, Race Street Properties, is illegal from one end to the other. Race St. Properties told Al that he should get his stuff out of there without a fee, and the Western Housing Court said he could get his stuff out of there immediately (thus, not having to pay for it) at 6/23/23 hearing Friday.

BUT Race St. Properties immediately advertised to auction his stuff and now have scheduled to auction hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of belongings this Saturday, July 1, 2023, at 9 AM (We need as many people as possible to be there at 8:30 AM at the latest) at 460 Race Street in Holyoke, MA.

We need a massive turnout. Obviously, they are making an example of Alton  King, but this criminal warehousing industry is minting money. No one is watching. While Race Street is the worst, in terms of licensing, they all engage in criminal theft, destruction of people’s property and their emotional and psychological lives, on top of their eviction.

Please stand with us!

We just found out about this, BUT it’s not too late to take action! JOIN US TOMORROW MORNING, JULY 1ST!

Stay tuned for more news and follow-up actions this coming week…
