From Occupy Eugene to Donald Trump in Four Short Years
Welcome to The Anarchist Capital of the World
By using direct action, activists achieved more in less than 24 hours than others have in 100 days of marches.
As the crowd dwindled and Against Me!’s “Baby, I’m an Anarchist” played through a blown-out amplifier, the chained-up activists offered up a promise to those who wanted to participate in the occupation.
As the days of nationwide Black Lives Matter protests grow, Eugene’s activists continue to face hurdles in organization and opposition, But, they’re finding new ways to educate and mobilize people within the city.
