Occupy Bangor group to move from library site
BANGOR, Maine—Members of the Occupy Bangor group say they'll abide by a request to stop camping on the public library's property.
Occupy activist Lawrence Reichard says the group on Friday night came to an agreement to leave the library property. He says the group will continue discussing its options.
The library's board of directors this week voted to ask the group to remove its tents and other property by 8 a.m. Monday. Library Director Barbara McDade said the encampment isn't covered by the library's liability insurance and the board had to protect the library from legal liability.
Reichard says between four and nine people have been staying overnight on the site, with larger numbers of demonstrators present during the day
