Rick Santorum gets Occupied and Glitter-Bombed….AGAIN!

We Knew it was coming, and it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy (sarcastic snicker).  Rick Santorum (wow it even feels creepy to type that name…lol), finally gets his. While greeting his supporters, following his third place finish in the South Carolina primary, Rick Santorum gets glitter bombed by “Occupy” protesters shouting “Hate Monger” and “Bigot.” Whether the protesters were actually affiliated with the Occupy Movement or Occupy Charleston has not been determined.

Movement in Motion – “Occupy The Caucus” Targets Iowa (w/Video)

Two of 2011’s biggest attention getters are about to collide in Iowa. All year, a pack of Republican candidates have been relentlessly campaigning for their party’s Presidential nomination. Those candidates are about to run into protesters from the Occupy Wall Street movement.

“Occupy The Caucus” organizers have promised not to disrupt the Iowa caucuses that happen on Tuesday January 3. However, they do plan to “occupy” the candidate’s campaign headquarters and appearances, letting them know they disapprove of how government is allowing greedy corporations to run the country and accumulate most of the wealth. Occupy supporters met a week ahead of the caucuses in Des Moines to start organizing their actions for the week.

As you can see in the video, participants broke up into candidate “preference” groups.The difference is that people were asked to stand not with the candidate they support, but with the candidate (Republican or Democrat) whose campaign headquarters they intend to occupy over this week. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, December 28 ? 30, supporters will go to campaign headquarters and try to ask the candidates “real questions”.

They say they will be loud, determined and heard. Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, January 1 ? 3, they plan to “chase the candidates and their Wall Street cronies around the state of Iowa, dogging their heels at all their black-tie dinners and staged media events, drowning out their empty rhetoric with the strong, clear message of the 99%: We are taking American democracy back!”

The group’s website says “We?re taking our demands for true democracy and economic justice directly to President Obama and the GOP candidates, to the banks, and to the media. They?ve ignored each of us as individuals, but they can?t ignore us all.”

American’s Be Fruitful and OCCUPY!!!

Occupy Movement Steps Up Activism in Iowa with Pre-Caucus Focus on GOP Race

The Occupy movement is making its presence felt in Iowa ahead of the Iowa Caucus — the nation’s first nominating contest for the 2012 presidential elections. Demonstrators have targeted the Iowa Democratic Party headquarters and the “Obama for America” office in recent days, protesting measures being considered in Washington dealing with defense spending, a planned oil pipeline and jobless benefits. Next they plan to focus on Republicans who will be crisscrossing the state in the next two weeks seeking voters’ support. “We think that we have a right to — a constitutional right — to state our purpose and to call for, and to address grievances that we have with the government and the corporate control of the government,” says Hugh Espey, the executive director of Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, a 36-year-old grassroots organization with some 4,000 members. “These sorts of protest are going to continue until we have a system that puts people before profits and communities before corporations.”
