I’m sitting here in the Fresh Air Center (read: NOT the Bella Center). There weren’t enough badges to go around this morning; seeing that my role here has been utterly useless, I gave my pass to someone who actually had something to do inside. I do wish I was inside though. I really do.
As I understand it, the NGOs just got up and walked out the center in protest. Just now.
Friends of the Earth and Avaaz have been denied access to 100% of delegates today.
The Bella Center metro stop is shut down in interests of “crowd control”.
One delegate has cleared security but now will not be signed into the Bella Center. He is a parliament member of some European country, and he refuses to leave and is now sitting in and getting arrested to protest. Good for him! Diplomatic immunity!
The President of COP15 just resigned proceedurally.
The police have invaded the YOUNGO convergence space. What the eff?? We’re a constituency organization. That is an outrage! They’re all over the university, though.
Fights are breaking out around the Bella Center.
And that’s how I spent my morning!!
