EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- The Eugene City Council may decide Monday whether to allow Occupy Eugene demonstrators to move to another park.

The Register Guard reports (http://bit.ly/tjGtOe ) about 100 have been camping on University of Oregon land in the Millrace area, but the university wants them to move on.

The council had approved camping in Alton Baker Park until Dec. 15. The demonstrators moved Thursday to the university.

The demonstration began Oct. 15 in Eugene with a march in support of the Occupy Walls Street movement.
