December 12 marked a global day of action where tens of thousands of activists raised their voices to the ears of negotiators who are in the midst of climate talks. Circle of Blue goes behind the scenes of Greenpeace’s preparations for the massive rally that claimed the streets of Copenhagen Saturday. Hundreds of protesters from around the world volunteered to coordinate “The World Wants a Real Deal” march. Equipped with thousands of yellow signs, which contained different climate change slogans, three floats and several compelling speakers, demonstrators sought to put pressure on political leaders for swifter action as we head into the second week of the historic conference.
