The Des Moines, Iowa Convergence, loosely aligned to CrimethInc, has
experienced extreme state repression in the last few days. Participants
picked up off the streets for misdemeanor violations are now being held
indefinately as part of an "investigation into anarchism in Iowa", according
to local officer from the sherriff's department. Law enforcement has also
claimed that they are also investigating other groups in the area.
Materials that were to be used in workshops and skillshares mysteriously
dissappeared from the group's campsite, including: lamp oil that was to
be used for a fire-breathing skillshare and pvc pipe that was to be used
in a home-made didjeridoo workshop.

Federal agents have detained an individual stating that someone called
them saying that they saw people constructing a bomb, which is entirely
untrue of our group.

Surveillance has been stepped up and is blatant.

These intimidation tactics have disrupted our ability to openly meet and
organize activism for the upcoming RNC protests in New York City.
