EUGENE, Ore. (KEZI) — A Eugene woman is speaking out after she and her family accidentally stumbled upon a topless protest outside City Councilor George Poling’s house.
The woman says she was taking her six and eight year old boys out to look at Christmas lights when she saw a group of topless women, with bags over their heads and red paint on their bodies.
She said the demonstration was being video taped by a man.
The footage you see in the video above of the incident is from YouTube. We’ve blurred out portions of it due to its explicit nature.
It’s the second protest outside Poling’s house by Occupy Eugene members.
The woman who spoke to us did not want her face on camera but says her children are terrified and she’s worried that Occupy Eugene is out of control and instilling fear in the community.
“My 6-year-old asked if they had been beaten and why were they bloody . . . were the masks covering up bloody faces, he didn’t know they were masks, he thought maybe they were bandages,” said the woman wanting to remain anonymous. “They were terrified that they were going to follow us.”
