Greenpeace Activists Detained For Risky Stunt Hanging Climate Change Banner Off Durban Hotel
DemocracyNow.org – Environmental groups in Durban have staged a series of actions in recent days calling on world leaders to agree to a just climate change deal. Democracy Now! got an inside look at one action staged by Greenpeace to hang a banner off of a Durban hotel where a meeting of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development was taking place, bringing together representatives from a number of large corporations and delegates to the U.N. Climate Change Conference. The banner read: “Listen to the people, not the polluters.” “Our goal today was to highlight how governments are being unduly influenced by a handful of evil corporations who returned to adversely influence the climate negotiations happening here in Durban,” says Michael Baillie with Greenpeace Africa. “They’re holding climate hostage.”To watch the complete daily, independent news hour, read the transcript, download the podcast, and for more reports from the U.N.
