Occupy the Igloo?
Icy Occupy-style igloo village planned to protest inequality as World Economic Forum meets in Switzerland.
And they thought it was getting cold at the Occupy Edmonton camp this weekend...
There'll be a whole new take on the anti-inequality movement if a group of young Swiss leftists have their way in January.
They're promising to build an igloo camp outside the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
The Canadian Press had the details:
GENEVA -- Activists inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement say they will follow the world's political and business elite to their annual Alpine retreat in Switzerland in January.
Left-wing groups in Switzerland say their plans include building an igloo camp outside the World Economic Forum in the Swiss ski resort of Davos.
The president of Switzerland's Young Socialists party, David Roth, told The Associated Press that an open invitation was issued to activists around the world via social networking sites Sunday.
Roth says the aim of the protest will be to draw attention to what he called the "undemocratic nature'' of the Jan. 25-29 forum attended by heads of state and industry.
Activists have yet to receive permission from Davos authorities to stage the protest.
