Occupy national day of protest in Maine, Feb 29
On Feb. 29th there will be an Occupy solidarity protest against the lobby group ALEC at their Augusta, Maine, legal representative Pretti Flaherty Beliveau offices at noon. Their offices are located on State Street at the west rotary.

All of the recent far right bills submitted under the LePage Administration have had their origin in ALEC model bills drafted by 9 ALEC task forces. Maine has 8 legislators currently sitting on these task forces, who have also received considerable campaign moneys from ALEC. They are: Sen. Debra Plowman, Sen. Richard Rosen, Sen. Brian Langley, Sen. Doug Smith, Sen. Christopher Rector, Sen. Michael Thibodeau, Rep. Ryan Harmon and Rep. James Hamper.
