Dozens of Occupy protesters that made Legislative Plaza their home over the last few months appear to be vacating the premises just days before a government-ordered deadline.
There's about a dozen demonstrators' tents still at the site, but down drastically from the 70 to 80 there at the height of the movement in the last October.
Gov. Bill Haslam signed a law on Friday that would ban people from camping on public property. Violators face nearly a year in jail and fines up to $2,500.
Occupy Nashville protesters have until Friday to leave the Plaza.
