Climate Clash

At least this time we weren't tear-gassed.

Last Saturday, a large COP15 protest made its way down the high street just around the corner from our flat. Local estimates place the number of protesters between 50,000-100,000 (the BBC story linked cites a lower number). All told, it was a relatively peaceful affair.

Throughout this week and the last, Robyn and I have felt relatively removed from the COP15 craziness unfolding at the Bella Center just down the road from where we live. Spending most of your time in the Ivory Tower of academia tends to breed that sort of dissociation.

Anyhoo, check out a few pictures here, as well as the short video below. Note the decidedly non-threatening Chaka Khan soundtrack.

Edit: Facebook doesn't show videos linked through Google Blogger, so click here for video.
