Then write him a note telling him you need the space and would like his items removed by the end of March. And that you will donate anything not removed.

Being afraid won't get you anywhere. If all he will do is use mean words, then you can take that. Are we talking physical threats? Sounds like he controls the family with fear and both you and your mom feel powerless against him. What about your DH stepping in?

It's just stuff. If you are that afraid of you brother there isn't anything we can tell you to do. You'll have to do it.
