5 Occupy Protesters Arrested at Paul Campaign HQ

Thursday, 29 Dec 2011 01:40 PM

 

DES MOINES, Iowa — Police have arrested five Occupy protesters outside the Iowa campaign headquarters of Republican presidential contender Ron Paul.

The arrests were made Thursday as demonstrators gathered to protest Paul's proposal to dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency if elected.

A spokesman for the group, Occupy the Caucuses, says they arrived at Paul's campaign headquarters to find the doors locked. She said protesters were arrested on charges of trespassing after they refused to leave.

Police had no immediate comment.

Thursday's arrests came a day after police handcuffed seven Occupy protesters outside of Mitt Romney's campaign headquarters in Des Moines.

The Occupy spokesman says the plan is for protesters to go to the campaign headquarters of each Republican candidate and President Barack Obama's campaign office before the weekend.
