Comunicato del Cja sulla perquisizione avvenuta nel luogo di convergenza

Police raid activists sleeping quarters in the middle of the night
Social & Climate Justice Caravan to arrive in Copenhagen at 6.30 pm

Last night at 3 am, around 200 police officers raided the Ragnhildgade
centre in Northern Copenhagen where activists were staying during the
Copenhagen climate talks. The police surrounded the building where the
activists were sleeping and proceeded to confiscate a number of tools
and materials, before leaving at around 4am.

Tannie Nyboe, of Climate Justice Action said,

“It’s completely disproportionate for the police to come in at three
o'clock in the morning, surround the sleeping-spaces and intimidate a
lot of sleeping guests. It’s really unacceptable for the police not to
use the liaison process that we set up and very worrying that this is
how Denmark is being portrayed to our international guests."

Lars K. Kristiansen, who has been working in the last week securing
windows, building fire doors and insulating empty buildings in the run
up to the summit said,

“The Danish authorities have been criticised for failing to provide
enough places for people who are coming to Copenhagen to sleep. We were
trying to meet that need, but now the police have confiscated the tools
that we were using to construct those sleeping spaces. â€

Isabelle LaChoix, who was sleeping in the centre at the time said,

“People from all over the world have come to Copenhagen to deal with
climate change, just like the people staying at the Ragnhildgade centre.
The ‘Danish text’ has already been a source of international
embarrassment for the Danish government – and now it risks more
criticism by treating climate activists like criminals.â€

Despite last night’s events, activists will be providing a warm welcome
for the arrival of the Social & Climate Justice Caravan at 6.30 pm at
the Klimaforum. The caravan has travelled from the 7th conference of
ministers of the World Trade Organization in Geneva to COP15 in
Copenhagen, with 60 activists from the global South drawing attention to
the consequences that neoliberal globalization and climate change have
had on their lives. Together with local activists in Copenhagen, they
will be exploring alternatives to free trade and the privatisation of
resources, and new means of cooperation between Northern and Southern
