Occupy Wall Street actions continue to spread across the country, and Maine. On Saturday, more then 150 people gathered on the steps of the capitol building in Augusta. That evening, more than 30 people camped out in the park across the street. Since Saturday, approximately 30 people have stayed each night. Each day, there is a demonstration on the capitol steps.
