News Article

Here are the minutes from the Nov 2, Des Moines GA:

FIRST IN THE NATION CAUCUS OCCUPATION CAMPAIGN WORKING GROUP

We reviewed the proposition that was passed in the GA about this campaign:

In solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, Des Moines issues a call to action to people around the planet.

We are excited to announce the First in the Nation Caucus Occupation. This winter, presidential campaign headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa and political events throughout the state will be occupied. Join us.

For too long, greedy corporations and corrupted politicians have dictated public policy and political interests on a global scale. Although these corporations and moneyed interests have vast capital resources, now every dollar belonging to the 1% shall be countered by a voice. An individual. One of the 99%.

We demand our grievances no longer be ignored.

After much discussion, the group reached consensus on the following campaign goals:

To reshape the political discourse during the Caucus season around the concerns of the 99%

To include non-violent civil disobedience in our campaign activities

This event is held in solidarity with the Occupy Portland movement.

We will be meeting at the corner of 37th and Hawthorne, and protesting in front of all 3 banks in the immediate area...

Although you are welcome to protest wherever is convenient and oppressive.

PLEASE BRING YOUR DOGS ON A LEASH

This is a creative way to involve all of our friends who still want to participate in the Occupy movement but don't necessarily want to go downtown.

This is a creative and PEACEFUL protest to draw positive media attention to our cause.

Who could talk shit about a bunch of God's most loyal creatures?

We also hope that this kind of event will inspire creativity within the ranks of the Occupiers.

So please join us. I'll bring the dog treats and you guys bring the creative dog signs...
