DES MOINES (KWWL) -

People are taking an Occupy Des Moines class on non-violent resistance.

In the class, students are being told these protests are not a competition between demonstrators and police.

The two dozen people in class on Sunday were told these are opportunities for people to use their bodies to make a statement.

Training included role-playing and advice from veteran protesters.

The Occupy movement began in New York, with demonstrates protesting what they see as corporate greed and the growing gap between the rich and poor.
