On Saturday, November 17, Occupy Eugene activist Gwendolyn Iris climbed a $70,000 chain link fence that bars access to Eugene’s old City Hall near 8th and High and chained herself to it in protest of the City’s lack of action for the unhoused.
A day of action in the defense of the unhoused!
Starting at 12 Noon at Free Speech Plaza.
Come help raise awareness around the issue of homelessness in Lane County. We are headed into another winter and once more the unhoused community faces the elements with no option of a safe place to sleep.
There will be a rally, march, poetry, street theatre, free food and free medical care, as well as direct action to raise community awareness.
On Labor Day, Monday, September 3, volunteers from Occupy Eugene will paint a picket fence in the front yard of Outpost A at 1191 Lawrence Street.
The purpose of the event is to educate the public about bank foreclosures—many of which are fraudulent—and their devastating impact on neighborhoods.
OE invites the community to visit us at 1191 Lawrence, to talk with activists and volunteers and to see and hear about the work we are doing.
This document explains the current process communications committee has for promoting events/actions.
What has the past year of activism in OE meant to you? Send us a brief statement at http://occupyeugenemedia.org/newsletter/submissions/ for our September/October issue, which will celebrate the one-year anniversaries of both OWS and OE.
