Occupy Eugene Celebrates Anniversary

EUGENE, Ore. — Occupy Eugene is celebrating its first anniversary Monday.

The social movement began last October as a local branch of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

While its message is diverse, the group’s main focus is corporate banks and their alleged role in the economic meltdown.

Occupy will be starting its celebration this afternoon with a “Breakin’ Up the Banks” march at the Park Blocks downtown at 8th Avenue and Oak Street. The festivities start at 2 p.m.

There are also a number of meetings and performances scheduled. Click here for more information.
