After meeting with Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds twice and demanding she sign an executive order providing automatic restoration of felons’ voting rights, the group is continuing to put pressure on Reynolds.

A protest on Monday featured another standoff with police.

The group forced a Des Moines Hy-Vee to close at 3:30 p.m. It also blocked a road. When the driver of a pick-up truck slowly drove through the protesters (after stopping and talking for a bit), the group doxxed the driver and called for him to be fired. Wyckoff Comfort did indeed terminate his employment on Monday.

Now Des Moines Black Lives Matter is claiming it “runs this city.”
