The struggle for a new development model, for energy sovereignty and for
sustainability depends on our ability to think along the lines of a new
development paradigm built not on oil but on the need to stop the flow of
carbon into the ecosystem.

activists are met with physical violence such as clubs and mass-arrests by
para-military riot armored police: pepper spray, clubs or batons,
man-handling and masses of police vans

The Reclaim Power <http://indymedia.dk/articles/1825> action started early
with the various blocks (green, blue, yellow & bike) aiming to get into the
COP15 negotiations to establish a People’s Climate
Assembly<http://www.klimaforum09.org/?lang=en>for one day.  Meanwhile
the inside block (or group) consisting of around 200
delegates and observers gathered in the main hall with the objective of
walking out of the centre to join the People’s Assembly
[pics<http://indymedia.dk/articles/1835>].
The outside blocks arrived at Vejlands Allé at just after midday attended by
several thousand people.  The inside block who marched out of the Bella
Center were unable to attend due to police blocking their way: they were
threatened with arrest and beaten back with batons [more

*Copenhagen: clashes inside and outside climate summit*

As conference hosts, the Danes have the task of ensuring that the Copenhagen
summit ends in a meaningful deal, but developing nations have accused Mr
Rasmussen of trying to impose a deal.

*They also fear that he is trying to negotiate an entirely new treaty to
supersede the Kyoto Protocol*, under which only developed countries have to
reduce their carbon emissions.

Within minutes of taking over as chair, Mr Rasmussen reminded delegates that
their leaders were arriving and expected progress to be made.

“I think the world is expecting us to reach some kind of agreement regarding
climate change, not just discussing *procedure, procedure, procedure.*

*“We have to move everything forward.”
*

To loud applause, and in perfect English, Mr He (China’s Vice Foreign
Minister, He Yafei) responded: “*Thank you Mr Chairman. I think the matter
is not just procedural, procedural, procedural. Actually it’s substantial:
it’s a question of respect for the host for at least 192 parties. You can’t
just put forward some text from the sky.*“

The Peoples Assembly is at 12pm where a union of inside-outside strategies
will take-back control of world political economy.

Or, at least, that is The Dream!*
