Climate Change Demonstration in Denmark
Last week the climate organisation Klimax (climax) held a large demonstration in central Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. The demonstration was the first of many more planned by the organisation before December 2009 when the top UN climate meeting Cop15 will be held.
Around 500-600 people participated, mainly young people, in the march through the central parts of Copenhagen under the slogan "hands of our climate."
The demonstrators also took more direct action by planting trees at a crossing and smashing a window using a miniature version of a wind power station on the headquarter for the Danish Industry. The Danish Industry is a lobbyist organisation which represents some of the dirtiest and most CO2 polluting companies in Denmark.
Later on they released three banners from a construction site with the words "planet" "before" "profit". When the demonstration was about to end a coffin full of water balloons was opened and thrown on the police.
