From Occupy Des Moines:
"On Saturday, November 19, Occupy Des Moines members will take the grievances of the 99 percent directly to top decision-makers in both political parties. First, we'll take action at a GOP presidential candidate forum. Second, we'll take action at a Democratic fundraiser where they are demanding between $100-$5,000 just to get inside the doors.
Occupy Des Moines members Frank Cordaro, Ed Fallon and Megan Felt will facilitate a participatory nonviolent civil disobedience training in preparation for occupying the campaign offices of presidential candidates in December. This is just an introduction. Highly recommended to beginners and people interested in finding out more about what nonviolence civil disobedience is all about. All are welcome. Time: 11:30am - 1:30pm
Join Occupy Des Moines for a fun and informative nonviolent civil disobedience training. Strength in unity, hope in resistance, power in numbers.
We will march to Terrace Hill in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and the International "Robin Hood Tax" Day of Action! On Saturday, October 29, everyday people around the world will rise up and demand Robin Hood taxes on big banks and Wall Street corporations.
