Occupy Maine said it plans to counter President Obama’s March 30 fundraiser at the Portland Museum of Art with a soup line in Congress Square.

The group said it’s calling itself “Occupy Obama’s Ritzy Fundraiser” for the evening.

“While he (Obama) is having his dinner for the 1% inside, we’ll be serving soup dinnah for the 99% on the streets,” Occupy Maine said in an e-mail to supporters on Friday.

The group said it will gather in Congress Square about 3 p.m. and “go mobile” after 5 p.m.

“Bring your soup spoons, empty stock pots and signs!” the e-mail said. “Make some noise!”
