The dozen or so Occupy Des Moines folks who had planned an “occupation” of President Obama’s Des Moines campaign headquarters found the doors closed on this December Saturday. Read the group’s news release below:
Occupy Des Moines and Veterans for Peace demonstrators declared victory Saturday morning when they arrived at President Obama’s campaign office in Des Moines – normally open for business on Saturdays – only to find it closed down with no volunteers or staff at the office.
“We shut Obama’s office down and no work by the campaign can be conducted today,” said Megan Felt, an Occupy Des Moines protester. “We will maintain our picket outside Obama’s office all day and will greet Iowa CCI’s latino immigrant team when they arrive here at 2:30pm.”
