NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Occupy Nashville protesters are considering a temporary withdrawal from their encampment at Legislative Plaza.

The idea was among four discussed Saturday during a meeting about the group's future. The proposal comes as state lawmakers work to evict them.

D.J. Hudson, who was arrested in October when the state first tried to oust the group, said she thinks protesters should return to their homes for the winter and regroup in the spring, according to The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/xmnDgt).

Others ideas under consideration include staying on state-owned land, moving to city-owned property or moving to private property, according to protester Lindsey Krinks.

No definitive decisions were made.
