“People’s Caucus” event in Des Moines marks beginning of week’s protests

Fewer people than expected turned out Tuesday evening for the first event of Occupy Iowa’s most aggressive attempt to influence the presidential campaign, although organizers said that more people would show up and that those present would make their case boldly.

At about 5 p.m. — two hours before the start of a “People’s Caucus” to discuss issues and make plans for demonstrations at campaign events — about 50 people milled around the group’s headquarters at 500 and 504 E. Locust St. in Des Moines. Organizers said between 30 and 40 people from outside Des Moines had checked in at the welcome center.

By issuing invitations nationwide, local protesters who since October have been rallying against inequality and corporate greed had hoped to draw in hundreds of people — they gave Des Moines police a range of 500 to 1,500 last week.
