More than five thousand protestors laid siege to climate change talks in The Hague. Calling for curbs on greenhouse gas emissions, activists built a sandbag wall at the venue to warn of the risk of flooding posed by global warming. Security officers forcibly removed some activists who gained entry to a room where an energy seminar was taking place. Check out the video.
Several demonstrations were held during the two weeks protests and the police responded with mass-arrests. Over 100 people were arrested at the Nuclear Walk of Shame on 22 November. Because of the extensive police presence, Greenpeace had decided not to take part in this particular protest.
