An interesting proposition from the Williams Green Scene blog:

Come sleep out on Paresky Lawn again this Thursday, Dec 3rd to support clean electricity!
By refusing to sleep in your dirty-electricity powered dorm you will be joining a statewide campaign to push the government of Massachusetts to repower the state with clean electricity over the next 10 years.

This is an especially important week to show your support, for Governor Patrick has just responded to students’ weekly sleep-outs and is negotiating with youth leaders of the campaign over the details of clean-electricity legislation.

Join us Thursday night to learn more about this campaign, show your commitment to clean electricity, and raise awareness around campus.

Again, we will supply the tents, but be sure to bring a sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and lots of warm layers! The WOC Equipment room is open during lunch time if you need to rent a sleeping bag or sleeping pad.

We will be checking in Thursday night at 11:00 PM on Paresky lawn. Hope to see you there!

Email sm8 if you have questions or if you are interested in sleeping out in Boston this Sunday December 6th.

Sounds like fun. Though it can’t be as much fun as a slumber party in Sawyer basement.
