Occupy Representatives to Participate in Ames Public Forum Sunday

Representatives from Occupy Des Moines and Occupy ISU will tell their stories and discuss plans to demonstrate outside GOP presidential candidates' campaign headquarters after Christmas.

Occupy Wall Street groups, which have met infrequently throughout Ames, will be the topic of a community discussion at 3 p.m. Sunday at KHOI Radio at the Ames Pantorium Building.

and the Alliance for Global Justice of Ames will host an open discussion with representatives from the Occupy Des Moines and groups.

Jerry Lamsa, an Ames Occupy participant who is helping with the discussion, said the groups are still determining the panel's format.

Occupy members will likely be asked to share their personal stories and take questions from a moderator. The Des Moines group will also discuss its plans for demonstrating at GOP presidential campaign offices after Christmas as well as demonstration plans during Iowa's Jan. 3 caucuses.

The event is free and open to the public.
