12 Occupy Protesters are Arrested in Des Moines, IA

Des Moines police arrested 12 Occupy protesters outside of the Iowa Democratic headquarter on December 29th, as they protested that President Obama has not made good on his promise to shut down the Guantanamo detention center and about corporate donations to campaigns.

In a press release the Occupy Des Moines organization released the following demands of President Obama.

  • Ease the mortgage crisis by ending foreclosures
  • Stop accepting campaign contributions from Wall Street
  • Restore civil liberties by ending indefinite detentions
  • Finally step up as President and start listening to the issues of the 99% instead of the issues of Wall Street

 So far, there have been 27 arrests of Occupy the Caucus and Occupy Des Moines protesters.
