What Now for Occupy Crew?

"Occupy Nashville" appears to have won their fight to stay at Legislative Plaza...so what do they do next?:

"I do not think they should be banned from protesting at the capitol," Senator Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville) said, "they should have the right to assemble as long as it is it is peaceful and they are not hurting anyone. If you cant protest at the State Capitol where can you protest?" Former State GOP Communications Director Bill Hobbs, who served under former State Chairman Robin Smith in one of the most conservative State party organizations in modern Tennessee history, called the situation "embarrassing" in several tweets over the weekend.

The big question for Occupy Nashville is this: The Governor's political miscalculation has backfired and garnered you some goodwill you did not previously have. Will you use that wisely and make your protest more legitimate, or will you just continue to sit there without a clear, resonating message and squander the biggest opportunity you have to build your political brand in Tennessee?

I'm not sure they are trying to forge a "political brand", but there is certainly a political brand interested in them.
