EASTON, Pa.—A group of protesters affiliated with the Occupy movement has returned to Easton and the mayor says they're breaking the law.

The Express-Times reports ( http://bit.ly/14sbHjV) Occupy Easton first came to the city in late 2011, as protests were waged around the country in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement condemning corporate greed and other things.

Easton Mayor Sal Panto Jr. says the city decided at that time to let the movement run its course. Now, protesters have returned to Easton and pitched tents on a downtown street. Panto says he's not sure he's going to tolerate it and that they are breaking the law. He says he's ready to take action if necessary.

The protesters, however, say they haven't been a disruption and are helping keep the area clean.
