NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Occupy Nashville protesters announced late Monday they planned to move their encampment from Legislative Plaza to the Public Square outside of the historic Metro Courthouse although only one tent was set up outside the courthouse during the overnight hours.

Protesters sent an email to Nashville's News 2 around 10 p.m. Monday announcing their plans following a discussion held Saturday.

The discussion was in regards to proposed legislation that would stop protesters from camping on public land.

One tent was seen in the public square around 2:30 a.m.  The lone tent was packed up by 6 a.m., leaving the square empty.

A majority of tents remained at Legislative Plaza as of 2 a.m. on Tuesday.

State lawmakers in the House and Senate could vote this week on the bill that would ban camping on state-owned property without permission.
