350 at pro-mural rally tell LePage to 'put it back'
By Tom Bell
MaineToday Media State House Writer

AUGUSTA About 350 people demonstrated in the State House today in support of the worker-themed mural that Gov. Paul LePage removed last month from the lobby of the Maine Department of Labor.

The crowd chanted "Put it back" and "Recall Paul," and they sang a song that extolled the virtues of both workers' rights and public art.

Many of demonstrators are involved in the arts.

Natasha Mayers, one of the founding members of the Union of Maine Visual Artists, told the crowd that LePage's behavior in the last three months including his decision to remove the mural has tarnished the state's reputation.
