OE Activists Occupy Courtyard of Old Federal Building

OE Activists Occupy Courtyard of Old Federal Building

A group of Occupy Eugene activists spontaneously began occupying the old Federal Building courtyard at 7th and Pearl streets on the evening of May 1.

They have obtained a 30-day permit from the GSA to be there although they cannot erect tents and must leave pathways into the building clear. They do have a tarp-covered structure where they can keep dry.

The demonstrators encourage other OE members to join them at the protest site. In addition to food and drink the occupiers would like materials to make sturdy signs and  a 200-foot extension cord. Amplification is allowed at the site, as is vending.

If you are driving by on Pearl or 7th,  please honk to show them your support.
