"Emergency" city council meeting at 12 noon today based on police reported incidents. Please come to city council chamber at noon to support Occupy Eugene, the largest site occupation still standing on the west coast, and by all measures one of the largest occupies in the U.S. If its a last stand, which we hope it isn't, solidarity today with Bradley Manning and Tahrir Square Cairo.

Poster Initial

1. The 25 to 30 dogs and cats at site should be safeguarded off site. Animal advocate occupiers at site have alternative animal housing options, so make arrangements soon. Sam Adams had them thrown in trash compactors with the tents in Portland, so this is an important detail. 2. The city wants to complete eviction on Christmas Eve or morning of Dec. 25, so we have three days to ourselves evict 200 homeless and move 35 tons of infrastrasture -- Lietenant C says we have this much decamp time "barring a murder". Speculation is that the Christmas eviction is staged such that Eugene 99% will be spending time with families and too busy to come down to site for a Portland style show of support on night of evicition. C. Concensed St. Paul principals dictate that we niether condemn nor support tactics other than our own, but Occupy Eugene has concensed upon non-violence for any support action staged at location of our site. 4. Occupy Eugene has concensed to rent two locations for ongoing orgnanizing, infrastructure storage, and community support. Our food kitchen will continue. We appreciate the solid core of support in Eugene community, including labor, and the support of other Occupy groups, and in particular thank Occupy Portland for help and inspiration.
