OccupyMaine attorney John Branson observed that the protest is against "the corporate takeover of our public spaces and our democratic government," and said the nature of the protest is "a form of speech, assembly, and demonstration that requires by definition the ability to maintain a continued presence in public space."
He asked the protesters to "reset the clock, vacate the park" - but that's extremely unlikely, given that OccupyMaine attorney John Branson says the group's legal position is stronger while the Occupation continues. Branson says the Occupy group would consider court action as one of its options, depending on what happens at the council meeting. No matter the outcome, negotiations with the Occupy group are likely to continue: As a message relayed from Occupy attorney John Branson to the Sunday GA said, the permitting process has a lot of opportunity for amendments and appeals in an attempt to forestall an outright denial. The runaway girls were located over the weekend on the Eastern Prom; Occupy attorney and spokesman John Branson says they fled Lincoln Park when they learned that Occupiers were assisting the police search for them. After the Porter incident, the Occupiers issued a statement reaffirming their commitment to nonviolence. It is a statement that might form part of what Branson calls a "social compact" that the group may develop for members to subscribe to if they wish to continue participating in the effort. Such an agreement, Branson says, is likely key to a process by which the Occupation could apply for a permit from the city that, if granted, could create a legal structure under which Occupiers and city officials alike would be confident in orderly management of the encampment. But what's in such a permit request, what's agreed to by the City Council over the next few weeks, and even whether the group is going to apply in the first place are unclear at the moment. Branson says that the First Amendment nature of the protest does not require a permit, but says such an agreement with the city could help address public-safety concerns that might trump the Occupiers' constitutional rights if the case ended up in court.

Update: On June 4, 2009, Maine Governor John Baldacci signed Bill LD 1169 into law, incorporating a reform proposed by CCD Director John Branson, which clarifies that a single improperly "witnessed" signature on a nomination petition does not justify invalidation of the entire petition sheet.
