Eugene columbus day march SUCCESS

60-75 rally at U of O ampitheatre Saturday nite, march downtown.
About 60-75 people convened at the U of O ampitheatre Saturday night for an impromptu anti-war protest. After various people there spoke out about recent protests & progressive actions & political events we marched from campus down 13th then stopped in the downtown park to hear the treesitter then eventually strolled on to the Federal Building (home of regional Forest Service, DEA) singing & chanting most of the way. We got encouraging honks from passing vehicles and an entourage of police on bicycles who respectfully kept their distance.

I believe there are anti-war events planned for the 15th and 26th in Eugene and elsewhere?
