Update 13 May 2015: *Our Eugene event will be rain or shine. * The Free Speech Plaza is kind of big, so please find us in the Northeast corner up the stairs by the entrance doors to the county, which is also away from the drumming, though it will be noisy so keep your remarks loud and brief!

People and planet before profits! PeaceHealth does electroshock. Educate the public about the use of this procedure without adequate informed consent or alternatives. Our society runs electricity through brains to enforce normality, while at the same time this so-called normality causes global warming!
Our vigil will be in the middle of the very popular Free Speech Plaza across from the busy Saturday Market! Musician and folk singer activist David Rogers will perform there at noon, and then he will cross the street for our 2pm event where he will play several songs! Our vigil will be one of many protest events that day against electroshock, so far events planned for about 7 countries! One of the organizers is an Oregonian who experienced electroshock: https://www.facebook.com/deborah.schwartzkopff One of the groups that is sponsoring and organizing events that day is: http://www.ectjustice.com/protest.php Info about the several dozen events that day can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/OccupyPsychiatry/events
