PORTLAND — A small group of people that gathered early this month to air displeasure with the nation’s corporate and political ways is now in its second week of demonstrations in Portland.

A group calling itself OccupyMaine started as an offshoot of an Occupy Wall Street demonstration, which started in New York City last month.

The group shows up at Portland’s Monument Square every day to hold signs and offer information on what they call corporate greed, political corruption and the need for change. At night, more than 20 of them have been camping in Lincoln Park a few blocks away.

Evan McVeigh is among those who’s taking part. He says it’s time for Americans to come together without political labels to share ideas and find common ground.
