The group has previous set up camp at the Lane County Fairgrounds and at Chambers and River roads in west Eugene.
Protesters say the fight for a safe place to sleep will continue and they will keep camping for the cause, especially with the colder weather approaching. They say the only way they’ll end this is when the city provides them a permanent place to camp.
“Absolutely. It would also give a lot of us some time to sleep and some time to refocus and go get jobs. A lot of us here do have jobs but when we’re having to move every three to four days, the anxiety levels build up,” said SLEEPS protester Lori Mahaney.
Protesters say they haven’t been issued any citations for prohibited camping yet. They plan to attend a special session at the city council meeting on Monday at 7:30 p.m.
As to where they’ll head next, they’re still unsure.
