Storming Bella Center

In Uncategorized on December 16, 2009 at 8:12 am

The UN has drastically and unfarily cut the number of civil society participants that can enter the conference center. The building is essentially open to a small, small, small number of NGO’s, press, and delegates.

Several NGO’s are planning to march in protest and some even are planning to “storm the Bella Center”. 45,000 people registered for the conference, the venue really can only accomodate 15,000. Some cuts had to be made, but this is the most important international gathering to take place ever. Accountability, transparency are so important at events like these. While there is a plethora of media, NGO’s play a role in offering ideas but mandating accountability and transparency of the proceedings.

I’ll bring you pictures as they are sent to me.
