In total, ten Occupy Des Moines protesters were arrested Wednesday during demonstrations at Mitt Romney’s Iowa office and the Wells Fargo branch. The protesters demanded that Romney and Wells Fargo release their tax returns, and that Romney return campaign donations from Wells Fargo PACs or Wells Fargo itself.
In a press release, Occupy Des Moines said Romney has received $61,000 in campaign donations from Wells Fargo and its employees. The protesters assembled around 2 p.m. and finding Romney’s office to be locked, started banging on windows and demanding to be let in, which led to some being arrested. Other protesters tried to build a funnel from the Wells Fargo office to Romney, while some played musical instruments.
