Sweden’s Nest 1 continued their Love Your People banner campaign throughout February, hanging up banners in numerous places in Stockholm and other locations in the Nest.

Nest 1 went to Sergel’s Square in central Stockholm on the morning of 9 February and put up two banners featuring the “Love Your People” message. There was no “lack of resources” for Stockholm police on the morning. The first patrol car appeared after banner number two was in place, and shortly after the activists left, no fewer than five police cars were seen searching for them. Despite this disruption, the activity was successful, with many Stockholmers seeing the healthy message in the morning.
Täby and Vallentuna
Several banners were put up in Täby and Vallentuna municipalities on the morning of Saturday, 13 February.
Activists from Nest 1 met in the early morning to put up banners on Friday, 5 February. The first was attached to a rock face along the E4 road near Södertälje. In order to fix the banner in place, the activists first needed to trudge through snow-covered woodland, before descending the cliff edge with the help of a rope and harness. Once in place, the banner enjoyed good visibility along the motorway.
Afterwards the activity continued, with more banners being put up on animal fencing along the E4.
