“You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.”
– Ken Kesey
Reclaim Kesey Square as a place for street artists, entertainers, friends and activists to gather as a community.
Since the breakup of the Washington Jefferson Park occupation site, many of the displaced homeless have been harassed by some within the Eugene Police Department.
They have been unfairly targeted, charged with small crimes, and then told they can’t return to a 20 block area surrounding Kesey Square.
This “Downtown Public Safety Zone” is being used to discriminate against the homeless. Alley Valkyrie demonstrates how easy it is to break these laws, and not get arrested because she doesn’t look homeless.
