Memo From Occupy Fredericton
Hi all! I just picked up our first few pieces of Christmas decor for the camp. It would really help us out if you could also bring by anything of that sort you’re not using from your own house or apartment!
The plan: We’d like to set up a large Nativity Scene on or under the Info-Table out front, and have a small tree (2-4 ft) beside it.
The Nativity Scene can be a little weird, as we’d like to provoke some discussion about the history and meaning of the holiday. We”d also like to place some mock presents under the tree labeled Affordable Healthcare, Clean Drinking Water, etc.
These pieces (donated or loaned) can be stored inside during severe weather. Any kinds of bells, ornaments, garland, bows and such for the tarp-area would also be greatly appreciated. We’d like to make clear to the city and her people that we’re supportive of all ethical faiths and traditions.
