The Assembly of Social Movements was held on 13 December in the Klimaforum (the alternative forum or people’s climate summit). It brought together more than a thousand people, in a joyful, fraternal and combative atmosphere.
The Plenary conference session of the Kyoto Protocol parties has been postponed today.
The essential stumbling point is the final statute of the conference text. The 9 December was marked by being informed of Denmark's draft text, that could be the major outcome of the conference. This text, that had been elaborated secretly (rumours have been circulating about its existence now for several days), it violates the democratic principals of the United Nations and buries the Kyoto Protocol, just like the Rio convention on climate change.

We attended several conference meetings.
