Occupy Des Moines members said Monday that they have moved their protest from President Obama's campaign office to the Iowa Democratic Party headquarters.
Protesters said they are "refusing to leave until Obama vetoes the National Defense Authorization Act and starts putting all the power of his office to bear on putting communities before corporations and people before profits."
The Occupy movement had been camped outside the president's campaign office in Des Moines since Saturday.
Occupiers said they want Obama to cut the U.S. military budget in half and "dismantle our U.S. military empire" to create jobs.
Occupiers said they want their voices heard and do not want to be ignored or marginalized.
"Had they spoke with us and gotten information from us and some sort of answers addressed, this could have been over a couple days ago. We are locked out of our president's headquarters," said protester Julie Brown.
The occupiers said they know they risk arrest by being at the office, but said they are determined to stay and be heard.
As of Monday morning, about a dozen protesters were taking part in the effort.
With this kind of genius surely these loons can find jobs.
Get ‘em all in one spot(Dems and Occupy Pukes) and Pump the place FULL of Zyklon-B Gas!
