"Hopenhagen" is Occupied at Cop15
Last night UK activist group Climate Camp demanded real solutions to climate change while occupying corporately sponsored "Hopenhagen" at the Cop15. Activists set up tents, held signs, and danced to stay warm for six hours in sub-freezing conditions Thursday night in the heart of downtown Copenhagen. One banner read, "Caution: Corporate Greenwashing!" Climate Camp exposed the corporate "green-washing" that is being advertised and sold to the world as solutions to the global climate crisis. Hopenhagen is a blatant example of corporations trying to profit from climate change. Climate change is a serious issue and should not be reduced a marketing scheme. It is bad form to attempt to profit from this situation which isaffecting the livelihoods of millions of people. This action was held in solidarity with Climate Camp activists who were simultaneously occupying Trafalgar Square in London.
Earlier that day UK global justice group Egality dropped a 8x5 meter banner over one of Hopenhagens largest billboards."What we need is real political power not 'hope'! We wont go on a rant but the best "sub-vertising" we've seen so far was renaming this place 'Shopenhagen', said Egality's spokespeople.
