ZURICH - A Swiss youth party called on activists on Sunday to stage an "Occupy" World Economic Forum protest from igloos when the global elite descend on the ski resort of Davos for their annual meeting in January.

Inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests, the youth wing of the Socialist Party (JUSO) invited occupy activists from around the world to set up a "Camp Igloo" in the Swiss mountain town from January 21 next year.

Occupy camps have sprung up in a number of cities across the world this year, protesting against corporate greed and economic inequality.
