February 11th 2014 is The Day We Fight Back Against Mass Surveillance

Why is there a US news blackout on Edward Snowden’s January 27 interview (in English) on German TV? Maybe because he accuses the US Director of National Intelligence of lying to Congress about NSA mass surveillance. Watch the interview here:

Occupy Eugene will add our voice to a broad coalition of activist groups, companies, and online platforms holding a worldwide day of activism in opposition to the NSA mass spying regime on February 11th. Dubbed “The Day We Fight Back.” Please revisit this site Tuesday, February 11, to help us flood Congress with our messages of support for the USA Freedom Act, to rein in illegal NSA mass surveillance and restore the rule of law over the US national security state.

Whoville Granted Reprieve Through February 28

Whoville Granted Reprieve Through February 28

On January 27, 2014, the Eugene City Council granted Whoville and its advocates 30 days to find a new location for the Whoville Unhoused Sanctuary. City Manager Jon Ruiz prefers private instead of public land for Whoville although everyone is aware we are not likely to secure private land in the 30-day period. Therefore three temporary sites on public land are currently being evaluated.
