Eugene citizens to hold forum on A22 Bush Protest

From the open publishing newswire: "Several from Eugene OR who participated in the Portland A22 protest of the unelected pResident will hold a citizen's forum to discuss outrageous police reaction to our few thousand dissenters... [i]ncluding photographs of the police attack (we hope!) and testimony from those who were pepper sprayed and shot at with rubber bullets."

"It's time for us to speak out to stop the kind of police brutality that interrupted citizens from dissenting our government on August 22 in Portland. Our public servants, the police, cannot be permitted to attack peaceful protesters as they have done in Eugene, Portland and other U.S. cities. Democracy requires that citizens have the right to exercise free speech without punishment.

"Our protest is the last voice we have left; we cannot afford to lose it." [ Announcement ]

Tuesday, Sept. 3
7 to 9 p.m.
Harris Hall (125 E. 8th) Eugene
