Local activist and videographer Tim Lewis has posted video and stills of Eugene police tasering a protester at a May 30 rally downtown against pesticides.
Citizens have organized two gatherings in support of the â€œKesey Threeâ€ arrested at the rally in front of the authorâ€™s statue.
The first is planned for Thursday, June 5 from 12-3 pm at the UOâ€™s EMU Amphitheater.
The second is a â€œsilentâ€ event planned for Saturday, June 7 in Kesey Square at Willamette and Broadway at 12 noon. â€œMany will have an â€˜Xâ€™ painted over their mouths or will be wearing tape over their mouths as a statement of how the police are trying to silence free speech with their violence,â€ an email announcement states.
The events are organized by Crazy People for Wild Places , a UO student group. The group is gathering photos and media links about the taser incident here .
