In Copenhagen's suburbs yesterday, police fired pepper spray and beat protestors with batons outside a climate conference meeting venue. The violence marked a low point for a climate change summit that's had plenty of low points.
The demonstators, who have been active during most of the negotiations, are demanding "climate justice" which means, presumably, firm steps taken to combat global warming.
Police said 260 protesters were detained following the incident. Another 900 people were arrested last Saturday after sporadic street violence during protests.
