Occupy Iowa ... Caucuses

by Katrina Trinko

From the Des Moines Register:


Iowa activists are inviting caravans of protesters from across the country to help them “occupy” all the presidential campaign headquarters in Iowa – and to shut the offices down if they feel their message about corporate greed is not being heard.

“You go inside or if they won’t let you in, you shut ‘em down. You sit in front of their doors,” said Des Moines’ Frank Cordaro, who came up with the idea that Occupy Iowa’s “general assembly” approved at their 6 p.m. meeting tonight.

The Occupy Iowa protesters want to capitalize on the fact that Iowa hosts the first-in-the-nation caucuses, Cordaro said. Non-violent protests could be waged throughout December and up until caucus day on Jan. 3, he said.
