Climate radio meets the activists who will be attempting to set a different agenda at the climate summit in Copenhagen

On 16th December activists will attempt to take over the United Nations climate summit in Copenhagen for a day and set the agenda.

In contrast to many of the false solutions in play at the talks, protestors will advance a common sense agenda based on the principles of Climate Justice

We speak to Chris Kitchen who has been helping to organise the mass mobilisations with the Climate Justice Action coalition about the week of actions that has been planned.

We also speak to Camp for Climate Action legal advisor Frances Wright about the legal context for the protests. CJA’s common platform includes:

  • leaving fossil fuels in the ground 
  • socialising and decentralising energy  
  • re-localising our food production  
  • recognising and repaying ecological and climate debt  
  • respecting indigenous peoples’ rights  
  • regenerating our eco-systems

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
