WESTON, Conn. -- Occupy Weston, the town organization affiliated with the national movement that protests social and economic inequality, will meet for the third time Saturday at the Weston Public Library at 2 p.m.

Richard Duffee, a Green Party candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2008, will speak to the group, according to Keith Brooks, the Weston resident who heads Occupy Weston.

Occupy Weston's effort to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, which prohibits the government from restricting corporate political expenditures, will be discussed at the meeting with plans to encourage the town government to take action, Brooks said.

Occupy Weston launched in November and met again in December. Prohibiting Wall Street and banking practices that harm society is a second issue the group plans to pursue.
