Updated: The Uncloaking the Kochs Street Protest is On in Rancho Mirage; Arrests Made; 25 Arrested

The first photo from the Koch Conference Street protest this afternoon.

Will there by violence/arrests – like the LEFT is predicting?

Rally will begin at 1:00pm in front of the Koch summit (at the entrance to Rancho Las Palmas Resort in Rancho Mirage). At 2:30pm, 2000 protesters will take an oath “To return our great nation to government of, by and for the people, not government of, bought and paid for by powerful corporate interests.” Then hundreds of protesters in HazMat suits and badges will try to encircle the summit with giant caution tape to “Quarantine the Kochs.” Scores of protesters are considering peaceful civil disobedience.

Update:

The answer is yes on the arrests: 

Authorities in California say 25 protesters have been arrested for trespassing outside a strategy session of conservative political donors at a Palm Springs-area resort.

Riverside County Deputy Melissa Nieburger (NEE’-bur-gur) said Sunday that the protesters were being booked at Indio Jail and released.

Hundreds of people participated in the mostly peaceful demonstration that had been arranged with authorities, but some protesters crossed the street to the Rancho Las Palmas Resort.

Deputies in riot gear arrested them without incident when they refused to leave the area.
