(KMTR) -- Occupy Eugene protestors have settled in what they hope is a more permanent spot to occupy in Eugene
Protestors have finished cleaning up Alton Baker Park and the Mill Race Park at the University of Oregon, moving into the Washington Jefferson Park in Whiteaker District of Eugene.
The occupation is set up in the park square bordered by Washington and Jefferson Streets, and 6th and 7th Avenues.
With a few more days to plan, the group has done more to set up the camp with precautions as well. The group has staked off grass areas, while building bark mulch pathways to navigate through the camp.
The group has also made a kid zone in a large teepee, while screening all volunteers who work directly with kids. Protestors are hoping the planning ushers in more families and community members to the protest.
“For people who have the idea that we're all homeless and jobless and don't really have anything better to do with our lives.. Come down and meet us. There's a lot of people here with full time jobs, there's a lot of people working and going to school, there's a lot of people working directly with the community to better the community in other areas besides the occupy movement,” says Gwendolyn Iris, an Occupy Eugene protestor who’s had a large hand in setting up the children’s area.
Saturday, November 5th, 2011, marked four weeks since the first Occupy encampment was set up in the downtown Eugene Park Blocks.
