Eugene, Or (KMTR) Less then a week into their stay Occupy Eugene protesters say they're packing up and moving again, to their fifth location in less than two weeks.
The occupy movement is currently set up in the Mill Race area on Franklin Boulevard. They say the spot is serving as a quick fix, a place for them to stay while they scout out a more permanent solution. Now, it looks like they may have found one.
A spokeswoman for the group says they're moving Saturday, to Washington-Jefferson Park. The move comes after a deadline was set, and then extended by the U of O for the group to leave campus.
Recent temperature drops have the movement looking for donated jackets, tents, and sleeping bags to keep protesters warm. U of O is also loaning out generators to power space heaters folks have brought in. Protesters say they hope to have access to power at the new site as well.
Protesters say they worked out the extension with U of O specifically for Saturday to coincide with bank transfer day.
