PORTLAND, Maine– It’s the third successive night of protests in Maine, and
NEWS CENTER Maine is continuing its live coverage in Portland. Things appeared to begin to intensify again Tuesday evening after organizers prompted people to in harmony go home after ending the presentation at 9 p.m.
A smaller group didn’t, however, and marched back to the Portland Police station. They were consulted with authorities again in riot gear. Around midnight on Tuesday police attended to the crowd of about 100 staying protestors and stated they are
participating in an ‘illegal event’which if they didn’t distribute they undergo jail. A handful did leave, but the majority of stayed. Police started buying people to distribute around 10:30 p.m. and stated individuals will be jailed if
they don’t. Police began using disperse techniques. About 200 protestors with disjointed objectives remain outside of the police department.
