Neighbors and activists, who stood out in the bitter cold for more an hour on Wednesday morning to protest the planned eviction of Jeffery Solivan of 32 Edgemont St., cheered after hearing that Fannie Mae had canceled its action.
The protest kicked off just before 8 a.m., initially with about a dozen people and grew to about 30 people when word came that the eviction was off. No date has been given for a new eviction.
Solivan said he hopes something can be negotiated with the lender that will allow him to keep his home, in the Pine Point neighborhood.
Its all I have besides my two cats, Solivan said, shortly after the protest ended.
Solivan said he wants to thank Jesus who made this miracle possible, and was also thankful to the many supporters who came out on an extremely cold morning.
The anti-eviction demonstration was led by Springfield No One Leaves, a grassroots organization that is organizing families at risk of eviction.

Soliven with rent-a-mob in background.
What happened? The MSM actually reported on the existence of a rent-a-mob.
What...all she has except for a cat?? Why doesn’t she have an Obama phone?? Who was paying her bill?
This can’t be true.
obama created all those re-financing programs so people would not lose their homes, if they were struggling.
She’s a he.
I know what you can do, you can pay your mortgage as promised!
Notice the mob’s key word? “collectively” That’s what it’s all about now, folks. Nobody owns anything. We all own things collectively. Welcome to the new US, Comrades.
Of course you are right, and I think the "Rent-a-Mob" did the right thing.
While the Obama economy has tanked, there are a lot of ordinary people left holding the bag. Unemployment like we have today leads to many hardships, like good people who did not want to default, being unable to pay their mortgage. It is a travesty to bail out banks and not bail out individuals.
