ACTIVISM. Sweden’s Nest 5 were once again in Ludvika last Saturday to deliver their message of hope ahead of the upcoming election.
Nest 5 visited various places in and around Ludvika on Saturday 18 June for public leaflet distributions. As usual, there were a lot of people out enjoying the summer weather and everything Ludvika has to offer. Public activism took place in central Ludvika and Hammarbacken Flea Market.
This time the leafleters had some company – two activists with a banner bearing an appropriate message for an election year:
The Nest chose to use the banner to criticise the parliamentary system in a humorous tone and inform the public that participation in an election does not mean slavishly playing the parliamentary game.
The activity went at a good tempo, with all the leaflets being handed out. During the distributions, the activists held both sporadic and extended conversations with positively and negatively inclined passers-by.
After visiting Ludvika during the most crowded hours of the day, the participants concluded the activity and said their goodbyes until next time.
