Protesters prepare for indefinite stay on plaza

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Wall Street protesters in Nashville say they're preparing for an indefinite stay at the Legislative Plaza as the state comes up with new rules for the grounds surrounding the state Capitol.

Last Thursday, a federal judge signed an order for a preliminary injunction barring the state from enforcing a hastily drawn-up curfew policy that was used to briefly dislodge the encampment from the plaza across the street from the Capitol.

The injunction does not prohibit the state from drawing up new rules, and Gov. Bill Haslam has said his administration intends to do so.

Nevertheless, protesters plan to occupy the plaza for a while. Protester Eva Watler says the group is in "winterization planning mode right now."
