Occupy Eugene and Cascadia Forest Defenders, in Solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, have put an “Occupy the Trees” call-out to activists around the world to protest the destruction of our Earth for the week of April 22-27. Activities are planned in Eugene throughout the week. Come join us at the Park Blocks!
See a full schedule here:
Join Occupy Eugene in protest this Friday the 13th at the 11th and Pearl St. Bank of America branch from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. as we “pull the plug” on this Zombie Bank to keep it in the grave where it belongs!
Let Bank of America know what we think about their illegal foreclosures, discriminatory practices against minorities and that they are not respecting the laws that protect active duty service members. Let’s stop the bank that is too corrupt to survive!
Reclaim Kesey Square as a place for street artists, entertainers, friends and activists to gather as a community.
All are welcome, no charge. No appointments; first come, first served. If you have any medical conditions, concerns or questions, please come by. Let’s all do what we can to make our Occupy Eugene environment as healthy and safe as possible.
