Black Thistle Street Aid
For three days an elderly man sheltered at the intersection of Hwy 99 and Royal Ave. With the first bitter cold snap of the year on Nov 17th, he passed away. The bus stops there four times a day, yet none called for help or rendered aid. In response, on Friday Nov 19th, Black Thistle Street Aid assembled a vigil for the elderly man whose identity at the time of this printing is unknown.
On the winter solstice of 2021, while many families were warm at home, a quiet group of anarchists made a showing at a candlelight vigil. The event was hosted by the Eugene Human Rights Commission, to memorialize every homeless person who died in Eugene this year. The Eugene Human Rights Commission seems to be a City of Eugene “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion”-type team (DEI). This city department is designed to put on solidarity marches, present awards, and gosh darn it, make everyone feel good!
