Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Saturday that "evictions, at their core, are about power," and that a landlord evicting a tenant for failure to pay rent or any other legal reason is "about power over you, and the vulnerable, and the working class":
"Let's get to it, let's talk about eviction defense. Evictions, at their core, are about power. And, it's about how people use certain degrees of power over you, and the vulnerable, and the working class.
And so, to fight that power, to fight the power of money, we need people power. We need to organize individuals, neighbors, and friends around us."
