Bright & Early: Still Occupied Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Occupy Nashville protesters have been asked to leave Legislative Plaza after three weeks of camping and protests. They’ve been given until 8pm tonight, but at least 50 of the protesters indicated that they are prepared to go to jail before they leave willingly. State officials are meeting this morning to discuss and plan to issue a statement shortly. Thus far, Occupy Nashville has been nonviolent and protesters plan to remain that way, even if confronted with removal.
