At 10:00 today Thursday 15/11 the Alarm clocks started ringing!
A gathering of 30-40 people from different organisations and group started walking around the Parliment building, with ringing alarmclocks and signs with clear messages like "AP funds has overslept", "Pensions funds should make my future safe, not burn it up" "You snooze you loose!"....
This is because 10:30 a historic meeting is starting, were the finance-committee will reword the framework for AP (The state pension funds) for the first time in almost 20 years! This could be a great step towards a sustainable Swedish finance and future! Unfortunately the wordings are right now very vague and leave alot of space for interpretations and own agendas, the AP funds themselfs say they don´t have to change if the draft goes through as it is. THIS is NOT acceptable!
Therefore our soft action aimed to wake them up and face the climatecrisis as it is, no longer can they continuing "snoozing" their responsibility they have been given by our democratic system!
We also handed out saffran buns and gingerbread, to make them (and the guards around the parliment) alittle happier and nicer!
People participating were concerned citizens, some part of organizations/groups like Fossil Free, Greenpeace, Grand Panthers, Gulliga, Fridays for Future & Kvinnor för fred!
RIGHT NOW THE MEETING IS ONGOING, SUPPORT THE WAKE UP WALK BY SHARING OUR MATERIAL AND/OR TWITTERING DIRECTLY TO THE PEOPLE IN THE FINANCE-COMMITTEE!
