OEMG Releases the Community Solutions Media Library Right Here on Our Website!

You can go directly to the Community Solutions Media Library at http://occupyeugenemedia.org/mediagroup/community-solutions-media/. The library is a table of contents full of media. We have more work to do but you can find a considerable amount of media there, beginning with Rob Sydor’s photos of Occupy Eugene’s first General Assembly September 29, 2011 and going all the way to our current efforts with Eugene’s Avant Gardeners, the Ninth Ward Protest Camp, and the various sanctioned camps that we have now.

We will be continuing to add media to the library and we hope that anyone who has relevant photos or videos will share them with us, so we can add them to the library also. You can put your photos on our Occupy Eugene Photos Facebook page, email Jana at occupyall1@gmail.com or call 541-606-2025 for more information.
