It’s been a couple months since we've heard about the Occupy Bend movement, but those involved continue to meet weekly. Member Barbara Fontaine talked with our news partner, News Channel 21. She says high unemployment and foreclosures caused people to act. “I think it's a response, what's going on and people are becoming aware.” The local “Occupy” movement in Bend was not large; like in Oakland or Washington, D.C. But Fontaine claims the State of Oregon has more small town “Occupy” movements than any other state.
