Swiss Life Painted Orange

   Yesterday, supporters of Renovate Switzerland threw paint on the “Swiss Life” building in Zurich, the #1 pension provider in Switzerland.
They then waited with signs for the police to arrive, and were taken to prison. Today, they remain in prison.
   From their Twitter, “The Government knows what needs to be done and who needs to act, and yet it continues to hesitate.”
   Renovate Switzerland are asking for a massive renovation project to make homes in Swizterland energy efficient. Energy consumption for climate controlled housing is the best way to cut emissions.


   On the current path, the houses in Switzerland will not be energy efficient for another 100 years. This is why the group wrote “100 years” on the building in paint. This is the second painting action this week, and at press time, a third such action is in progress.
Renovate Switzerland is part of the A22 Network the of Civil Resistance.

In Solidarity, Will Regan

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
