Four occupy protesters arrested at Des Moines foreclosure auction


Four people were arrested in Des Moines Wednesday after occupy protesters kicked off a new effort focusing on foreclosures.

Twenty occupiers chanted and sang at the Polk County Sheriff's foreclosure auction.

The protest began right after the auctioneer began describing the first of 29 homes up for sale.

Protestors shut down the auction for almost two hours. Des Moines police responded and arrested four people, issuing citations to each.
