Occupy Eugene and Cascadia Forest Defenders, in Solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, put an “Occupy the Trees” call-out to activists around the world to protest the destruction of our Earth for the week of April 22-27.

Here in Eugene we had an Earth Defense Day celebration at the park blocks in downtown Eugene, with speakers, music, teach-ins, and food.  Activities were planned throughout the week: Monday as Public Lands Day, Tuesday as World Day for Animals, Wednesday as Kids Need Forests Day, Thursday as Eco-feminism Day, and Friday as Global Climate Change Awareness Day. Speakers, musical performances, marches and rallies happened throughout the week.

1. Immediate attention and reversal to Global Climate Change which threatens all llife on Earth.

2. Disruption of the Earth-destroying profit machines led by the richest 1% of the world and their government lackies.

3. Ending all Commercial Extraction from Public Lands in all nations of the Earth.
