Greenpeace activists and supporters along with other NGOs converged on the Global Business Day conference in Durban to name and shame "The Dirty Dozen" carbon intensive industries who are helping stifle progress on agreeing a global deal to combat climate change. Greenpeace climbers who attempted to hang a banner demanding, 'Listen to the people, not the polluters' were arrested while life size puppets representing corporations, including Shell, Koch Industries and Eskom, which are pulling the strings of key world leaders, joined the protest. In particular they highlight links to including the US Congress, European Union President Barroso and Canadian Prime Minister Harper.
