Greenpeace and Other NGOs March Through The ICC

Kumi Naidoo, along with nine other Greenpeace activists, four of whom are from Greenpeace Africa, has had his UN accreditation badge removed, meaning he cannot re-enter the site during the remainder of the UN climate conference.

This afternoon Kumi joined scores of campaigners from across the world at a protest in the conference centre, outside the plenary room.

“We are here to stand with the most vulnerable countries whose basic survival needs have not been met by the men and women in that conference hall. We are here to call upon government minsters to listen to the people and not the polluters. The United States delegation is right now organising, line-by-line, the means by which United Nations member states will be eradicated from the map. We will not tolerate this.”
