Activist Alert: Halloween protests, Occupy Medical needs a new home

Protest Trump on Halloween at the Federal Courthouse, 405 E. 8th Avenue, noon-1 pm Tuesday, Oct. 31.  Costumes encouraged! Resist Trump every Tuesday from noon-1 pm, a peaceful rally in opposition to Trump agenda.

Occupy Medical Eugene, a 501c3 nonprofit offering free medical care to all, is in need of a new clinic. White Bird was offering the group space, but OM says, “They need to expand, and we have had to relocate.” OM’s bus, previously at the downtown Park Blocks, is in the shop. OM is a hoping a philanthropic landlord might ideally provide “a modest location near downtown or west Eugene.” The group says, “We are hoping for a couple of exam rooms, a restroom and a waiting area with office space.” Contact OM Clinic Manager Sue Sierralupe with ideas at 541-316-5743 or occupy-medical.org.
