Emily Semple Wins City Council Seat

Emily Semple Wins City Council Seat

Emily Semple (Occupy Eugene’s Brave Beatrice) has officially won a position on Eugene’s City Council. Lane County Elections has finalized the results and Emily won by 140 votes. We welcome her as our new representative for Ward 1 in Eugene. With national politics in turmoil we have managed to get one of our own occupiers in office to represent us locally! We have come a long way since the Eugene City Council was deciding our fate in Washington Jefferson Park. Congratulations and thank you for all you do and for being so awesome as to take on the system for us again. 

Occupy Eugene’s own “Brave Beatrice” (Emily Semple) Is Running For Eugene City Council Ward 1

Occupy Eugene’s own “Brave Beatrice” (Emily Semple) Is Running For Eugene City Council Ward 1

To add to her wide range of diverse tactics practiced since 2011, Brave Beatrice is running for office! Among others, she is endorsed by the current Ward 1 city councilor George Brown (now retiring) and City Councilor Betty Taylor. Beatrice has been arrested in defense of free speech and won her Federal court case. She made all of our beautiful OCCUPY bandanas and has participated in numerous actions these past years. Occupying the city council is her next tactic for bringing the voice of the people to the city 

Brave Beatrice needs your help! This is when the power of the people through grassroots efforts could REALLY make a difference! It is crucial to have more volunteer support during this last window of opportunity—before ballots are cast. Please volunteer just a little time toward helping Emily help us
