Greenpeace blocks Europe's premier business summit to climate laggards

Video | May 19, 2011

Over 170 Greenpeace activists blocked business representatives from entering a European Business Summit: 'Europe in the world: leading or lagging?'. The activists locked themselves to doors, denying entry to delegates from companies that oppose tougher climate targets while welcoming businesses that support the targets. Belgian police arrested and dragged away activists wearing the logos of Volkswagen, BP and Microsoft while more activists scaled the building and hung banners.
