Activist Jose Jaime posts a sign in front of a foreclosed home where squatters have been living during a blight tour that activists say highlight how big banks are hurting local communities by failing to maintain their foreclosed properties in Los Angeles, California, May 17, 2012. Activists are calling on city leaders to enforce LA's blight ordinance that allows the city to collect $1,000 a day from banks that do not maintain their foreclosed homes, which activists say should be used to rebuild the neighborhoods.
