This past week, the Tennessee House passed a bill that would force Occupy Nashville’s encampment off the plaza outside the capitol.  Debate in the state Senate delayed action on the measure for a week, granting protesters a temporary reprieve. Some protesters began taking down tents Wednesday, but they said their movement was not defeated. They instead argued the camp had become a distraction from the inequalities that first galvanized Occupy Wall Street. This report brought to you by Daniel Potter of WPLN.
