Occupy protesters unable to meet with Democratic official | The Des Moines Register | DesMoinesRegister.com

Rep Wasserman-Schultz strikes me as the last sort of Politician any self-respecting Socialist much less Anarcho-Syndicalist would care to parley with.  Where’s Big Bill Haywood when you need him?

Occupy Des Moines demonstrators went to the Democratic National Committee’s “war room” in downtown Des Moines twice on Sunday to try to meet with the committee’s chairwoman, but the party says she won’t be in town until late tonight.

A day after police made 18 arrests at sometimes-heated rallies at political offices in the metro area, protesters carried out several more subdued actions Sunday. One man was arrested at Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign offices in Des Moines.

More events are expected Monday and Tuesday, before the Iowa caucuses officially kick off the presidential campaign. Spokesman Stephen Toothman said new plans won’t be made until a meeting Monday morning. Protesters have repeatedly emphasized that they do not intend to cause any disruptions to voting Tuesday night.
