Occupy Des Moines to march on Terrace Hill on Saturday

Hundreds of Occupy Des Moines demonstrators will march on Terrace Hill on Saturday, part of an international “Robin Hood Tax” day of action. And tonight the group will hold a “We are all Scott Olsen” candlelight vigil, named after an Iraq war veteran seriously injured by police at an Occupy Oakland demonstration earlier this week.

The vigil will begin at 9:30 p.m. at “People’s Park” on the State Capitol grounds in Des Moines. The march to Terrace Hill on Saturday morning will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the downtown sculpture garden.

Occupy Des Moines has gone on for nearly three weeks, despite a slew of arrests at the Capitol on charges of trespassing early on in the movement. Most of the dozens arrested have asked for a jury trial on those charges, with a lawyer for the group saying their First Amendment rights were violated.

Members of the group are now camping out in Stewart Square, at the intersection of E. 14th Street and E. Grand Ave. Overnight protests are also taking place in Iowa City, Cedar Falls and across the country, following the lead of the Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York City.

Rallies have also been held in Ames, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, Dubuque, Mason City and Sioux City.

Members of Occupy Des Moines have done “banner drops” over Interstate 235 through Des Moines, and have plans to do more. Also this week many members of the group turned out to protest a visit from Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to West Des Moines.
