Arlington, Va.—Homeowners and small business owners faced with eminent domain abuse will want to order a DVD released today by the Castle Coalition, a national grassroots organization that helps property owners from across the nation fight the use of eminent domain for private gain.

“Not for Sale: A Comprehensive Guide to Fighting Eminent Domain Abuse” is a live-action DVD and companion to the Castle Coalition’s popular “Eminent Domain Abuse Survival Guide.” The two can be purchased together for $3.95 at

Featuring interviews with property owners and activists from across the nation who have successfully battled eminent domain abuse, “Not for Sale” provides tips, tactics and practical advice for anyone waging their own grassroots battle to save their home or small business. The fast-paced one-hour DVD employs cutting-edge graphics and illustrations along with interviews to explain to viewers how to gather information, build a coalition and engage in local activism.
