Inside Outlaw – Occupy Eugene

//

 The New York Times quoted a woman giving advice to a new protester. “It doesn’t matter what you’re protesting,” she said. “Just protest.”

The Occupy Wall Street protest, vague in its goals and a little cloudy in its origins, is gaining momentum as it branches out across the nation with the help of social media. Occupy Eugene is one of the more than 100 reported participants in the fledgling movement.

EDN’s Inside Outlaw stopped in on Saturday’s protest/membership drive to get a first hand account.
