BANGOR — The number of round-the-clock Occupy demonstrations in Maine has grown to three, with tents popping up at a new site over the weekend in Bangor.

Bangor police threatened to arrest demonstrators if they camped overnight in local parks, so protesters pitched tents next to the public library. The site is just yards from Pearce Park.

Media team coordinator Lawrence Reichard says there were 13 tents on the first night, Saturday night. On Monday, six tents remained, and he said the group is staying put.

OccupyMaine in Portland has been at Monument Square and Lincoln Park since Sept. 30, and Occupy Augusta has been encamped in Capitol Park since Oct. 15. The groups are aligned with Occupy Wall Street, which decries wealth inequality and corporate influence in government.
