Occupy Eugene Public Awareness Event!

From 11-2 today in the heart of downtown Eugene, folks in solidarity with the ongoing Wall street protests in NYC gathered to hand out information and talk with Saturday Market attendees. Occupy Wallstreet protesters in New York City are protesting issues including the 2008 bank bailouts, foreclosures and high unemployment in the United States.

Occupy Eugene started as a facebook page only a few days ago and now has close to 800 members. Local events are being planned for this coming Thursday, October 6th, as a show of solidarity with Occupy Portland and with the rest of the country. The next meeting of the Occupy Eugene General Assembly (which is a gathering of interested people) will be:

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 5pm
University of Oregon
EMU Amphitheater (outside)
1585 East 13th Avenue, Eugene, OR
