Report by Wes Brain, HCAO Rogue Valley
Medford, Oregon--July 30, 2015
We had 30 folks attend our press conference outside the downtown Medford library. Despite numerous press releases, it was a no-show for mainstream media--no network TV or corporate newspapers appeared. Thank goodness for the Rogue Valley Community Press, which came to the event and then came inside where people gathered to toot party horns and eat homemade PIE! I did a pie and people count with Health Care for All-Oregon-Rogue Valley activists Ivend and Kathy Holen. Ivend reported about 40 people inside the library, while Kathy reported nine pies were brought by volunteers. She also reported, "one person ate six pieces!"

A special thanks to Jason and Vanessa Houk with the Rogue Valley Community Press who supplied these photos.
