Occupy Nashville is in urgent need of battery donations after a visit from a fire marshal with the Nashville Fire Department yesterday. Until now, there has been one working electric outlet on the plaza that has been the sole energy source for the encampment that now includes over 60 tents. That outlet has now been locked and is no longer available for their use. In practical terms, this means that they now have no way on site to either cook or warm food already prepared. Nor can they recharge the equipment they need to use for the live streaming of General Assemblies and direct actions.
If you can donate car batteries, marine batteries, or deep cycle batteries, please bring them to the plaza a.s.a.p. You can also make cash donations and specify that your contribution be used for this purpose through Occupy Nashville's site.
