Tuvalu Demands Binding Climate Agreement

Posted On Wednesday, December 09, 2009 by Danielle |

Today the small island nation of Tuvalu demanded a binding climate agreement from developed nations. After tabling the negotiations for a few hours, the Tuvalu delegation planned an unauthorized action just before recommencing the talks. I arrived at the plenary session early so I had a unique perspective from the inside of the hall. Below is the video that I shot, and links to more information about this action. After the protest no more civil society members were allowed into the plenary room, leaving about 2/3 of the huge room unoccupied. We must stand in solidarity with Tuvalu and continue to demand a FAB -fair, ambitious and binding - climate treaty.
