ACTIVISM. Members of Sweden’s Nest 5 gathered for a day of activism in Smedjebacken on 20 March.
On Saturday, 20 March members and activists from Nest 5 met in Smedjebacken, Dalarna County.
The day began with a trip to an area outside of town to put up birdhouses. Certain bird species need hollow spaces to nest in, which are often hard to come by.
Naturally the group also took the opportunity to carry out a public-facing activity, with a banner action on a bridge just outside Smedjebacken.
Although the traffic was a little thin, the participants received a lot of positive feedback in the form of waves (most of them legal) and thumbs-up.
A comical situation arose when two people in the same car reacted differently – one giving a thumbs-up and the other sticking up their finger.
After the banner action, the comrades also had time to hold a training session. This featured running and other disciplines from the activist test, including push-ups and sit-ups.
