OEMG Releases the Community Solutions Media Library Right Here on Our Website!

The Occupy Eugene Media Group has been working on an archive of photos, videos, and podcasts that is now finally available.  You can go directly to the Community Solutions Media Library at http://occupyeugenemedia.org/mediagroup/community-solutions-media/. The library is a table of contents full of media. We have more work to do but you can find a considerable amount of media there, beginning with Rob Sydor’s photos of Occupy Eugene’s first General Assembly September 29, 2011 and going all the way to our current efforts with Eugene’s Avant Gardeners, the Ninth Ward Protest Camp, and the various sanctioned camps that we have now. Twenty Producers have contributed so far with more to come.

We will be continuing to add media to the library and we hope that anyone who has relevant photos or videos will share them with us, so we can add them to the library also. You can put your photos on our Occupy Eugene Photos Facebook page, email Jana at occupyall1@gmail.com or call 541-606-2025 for more information.

Please comment on the library pages, so that we can all become a part of the OE library’s narrative, describing the Occupation in Eugene and all the good work that it has inspired. We hope for the library to be a platform for Occupiers to share media about their efforts and a place where others can find put about our good work easily. Please feel free to make a donation to Occupy Eugene or our media group. Anything helps and we promise to use it for good. We also encourage you to volunteer your time. We greatly appreciate any offer to help with recording, editing, or data input. We have a computer for use as well as camera equipment, thanks to the Wayne Morse Project Grant!

–And please email me any corrections if you spot a mistake in the library–

Beyond Vietnam- A Time to Speak! Video Footage

For those that missed Community Alliance of Lane County’s Dramatic Reading of MLK’s speech, Beyond Vietnam–A Time to Speak!, it was amazing!  And the Occupy Eugene Media Group has a great video of it to share with you at our youtube channel https://youtu.be/WsG1t58iQzU.  Martin Luther King wrote this speech in 1967 and it is seriously eerie how relevant it is today.  The Eugene Peace Choir opens the show.  Enjoy!

Photos of Zombie Bank Protest

The Zombie Bank protest Occupy Eugene held on Friday the 13th went amazingly well thanks to makeup artists, sign makers, artists, printers, furniture deliveries, medical suppliers, and of course the occupiers themselves.

While we were there, we handed out flyers to engage with people about how Bank of America has been bankrupting America as a Zombie Bank after it was resurrected from the dead by our government in 2008 with a 45 billion bailout.

Now many people are losing their homes to illegal foreclosures and they get $2,000, if any money at all as compensation for wrong doing on the bank’s part.

The protests will continue next week, with a special guest Max Rameau, author of Take Back the Land.

Have a look at some of the photos taken by our talented photographers.
