The voice of the Canadian youth climate movement at COP17. We're organizing in our communities and building the empowered movement we need.
Looks like security is deciding what to do .. The group has announced that they will stay
Security waits while youth & civil society decide whether to stay in the ICC lobby or to go
Before deciding, the human mic "will let each person take the time to decide for themselves"
Cheering after a human mic anncment that a conversation with #unfccc went well
The crowd is singing+ clapping in the ICC. Spirits are high. Ambition of the negotiators must match
The minister said time is running out. Targets must be ambitious. -- "Stay strong Africa"
Note how security is separating civil society and "official" delegates.
Youth & civil society chanting and shouting, surrounded by security #cop17act #cop17 #climate
A line of staff keeps the crowd coedoned off..
The crowd is chanting "don't kill Africa over and over"
