PORTLAND — Occupy Maine has asked the city of Portland to withdraw all city funds from TD Bank and to transfer those funds to a locally owned bank or credit union.

That was among four grievances filed this afternoon by Occupy Maine, just a few hours before the City Council was scheduled to review the group’s petition that, if approved by the city, would allow their encampment to remain in Lincoln Park.

John Branson, Occupy Maine’s attorney, said the grievances were agreed to at a general assembly on Sunday in Lincoln Park. He said the group wanted to make its views known, though he acknowledged that the requests might have been filed too late for the City Council to consider tonight.

The grievances were delivered to Gary Wood, the city’s corporation counsel, on Wednesday afternoon. The group filed its amended petition with the city on Monday, in which it recommended that the encampment be limited to 50 overnight occupants.

“Occupy Maine has been discouraged about the extent to which the media and the city have viewed the occupation movement mostly through the lens of public safety and a classic ‘law and order’ mentality,” Branson said in the document.

“The group remains hopeful that the democratically elected members of the City Council will speak publicly about the grave economic and social injustices and looming threats to the integrity of our constitutional democracy that gave birth to the Occupy movement here and around the country,” Branson concluded.

The group says the general assembly “has shined a bright light on these social and economic injustices that are rampant in Maine’s most prosperous city.”

In addition to transferring funds to a local financial institution, Occupy Maine’s list of grievances asks that the city set aside the State of Maine Room in City Hall for a weekly general assembly that would allow the public to develop proposals for the City Council to consider.

Occupy protesters also want the city to increase support for homeless people in Portland, including those who have come to live at Lincoln Park. They urge the city to find ways to get them into housing.

Finally, Occupy Maine wants the city to create a 24-hour free speech and assembly space in Monument Square where people can gather at any hour to engage in non-commercial First Amendment activity.

Branson said he hopes councilors will remain flexible and consider all their options during tonight’s debate.

“The City Council is not being forced to do an up or down vote on this (petition),” Branson said.

If the City Council does vote to deny Occupy Maine’s permit, Branson said the group could seek judicial intervention.

“We don’t believe the city has the right to evict us,” he added.
