Film: Fire in the Heartland

Don’t miss this outstanding film this Thursday, May 7 at 6 PM at the old Bijou (492 E. 13th Ave. Eugene). It tells the truth and inspires unlike the recent PBS documentary about “the end of the sixties” quoting Buchanan of all people at length and suggesting that Nixon felt terrible about the student deaths. What lies! This film and the Nixon tapes tell a completely different story America needs to hear.

Come Raise a Glass to Celebrate Community Radio!

Wed May 6th 2015
Eugene PeaceWorks is working to bring KEPW-LP 97.3, a real community radio station to Eugene!  Occupy Eugene sincerely supports this effort because independent media is so important in an era where we receive our news more and more based on corporate interests.  PeaceWorks just got word from the FCC that they have been granted an 18 month extension on their construction permit, which means they have enough time to fund raise to buy necessary equipment.  Today from 11 am to 10 pm at Oakshire Public House at 207 Madison St. $1 of every beer served all day will help launch Eugene’s first grassroots community radio station. There will be a EPW/KEPW table and live music in the evening provided Alder Street and The Slumps starting at 5. If you can’t attend but want to donate, call their office at 541-343-8548.

Occupy Eugene / Bankbusters Benefit Movie: Jekyll Island

Jekyll Island: The Truth Behind the Federal Reserve gives a history of our monetary system very different from the one you may have learned in school.  Global bankers have waged an unrelenting war on popular government in the United States since the American Revolution, until they were able to trick congress into establishing the Federal Reserve system 100 years ago. By gaining the power to control the money supply, the private bankers who own the Federal Reserve system have taken control and made a mockery of self government. Through manipulation of a constant series of economic booms and busts, wealth has been concentrated in the hands of a tiny elite. Our economic vitality and the common good have been sacrificed to make a shrinking ruling class even richer.

Join us for the movie and a discussion of the real steps we can take locally to create a money system which builds democracy and prosperity for all.
