A radical group called Anonymous, who I know little about, are trying to piggy back Occupy Des Moines and have called for shutting down the caucuses on January 3rd. Occupy Des Moines is emphatically against that. Many plan to attend our caucus, and we will continue to speak out against any effort to interfere with people’s right to vote.
Our call is to demand that the presidential candidates take the grievances of the Occupy Wall Street movement seriously. If not, we will go to their headquarters on December 28, 29 and 30, reiterate our demand, and occupy their headquarters until they respond favorably or until we are removed. Granted, the latter is more likely to happen.
Given that much of America’s malaise stems from the confluence of corporate and political power, I feel occupying the offices of those seeking the highest office in the land is a legitimate action. And it’s one thing that Occupy Iowa groups are in a unique position to do to contribute to the national movement. –Ed
