Climate activists hold sit-in at Mayor Cooper's office

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Dozens of teens and young adults held a sit-in at Mayor John Cooper's office, demanding that he declare a "Climate Emergency" for the city of Nashville.

More than 100 members of the "Sunrise Movement" protested during the newly-elected mayor's first day in office for several hours Monday, and as of 4 p.m. were still there. (link)

Rod's Comment: I suspect that if Briley was still mayor he would have done it. I hope Cooper will not.  I suspect we are going to see more activity like this as progressives flex their muscle. I also would not be surprised if a memorializing resolution to this effect is not soon introduced in the new council.

  1. Why shouldn't Nashville residents call for action on climate change/global warming?
