Uprising Radio: This Week In Copenhagen

This Week in Copenhagen…
Uprising Radio

In the first major street demonstrations on global warming in Copenhagen, about 40 activists were arrested today. The demonstrations were aimed at a meeting of corporate leaders gathered as part of the larger UN climate summit or COP 15 to discuss the role of business in tackling global warming. The activists chanted “Mind your business, this is our climate.” Over 50,000 activists have gathered in Copenhagen, Denmark, and many are hailing the gathering as the “most important meeting of their lives.” Today we’ll kick off the show with an audio summary of the first week’s events in Copenhagen, gathered by the hundreds of media activists and street journalists that are creating their own media.
