The Greenpeace activists "Red Carpet 11" (formally known as "Red Carpet 4") return to court in Copenhagen to stand trial for their part in a peaceful protest at the climate summit in Copenhagen a year and a half ago. The “Red Carpet 11” delivered a message to over 120 European leaders attending a banquet during the ill-fated climate talks. The message was simple: 'Politicians Talk - Leaders Act'. Those activists will face serious charges and possible jail sentences for bearing witness to one of the greatest political failures in modern history. Outside the courthouse the activists hold a banner with the message 'climate action needed now more than ever '. 08/19/2011
