Moving SLEEPS Around Eugene
The back-and-forth of the Eugene SLEEPS protest continues. SLEEPS, Safe Legally Entitled Emergency Places to Sleep, features people camping in public places around the city of Eugene.
A judge ruled that demonstrators have the right to remain overnight in Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza. But then Lane County commissioners ordered the entire plaza closed for cleaning. Commission Chair Sid Leiken explains the county's approach to SLEEPS and its issues.
