COP 15

Climate Demonstration in Copenhagen

Updated 14:24

In Copenhagen, some 30,000 people have gathered at a rally to demand effective international measures to combat climate change. This is believed to be the largest demonstration on the occasion of the ongoing world climate summit in the Danish capital.

Due to the short distance, many demonstrators from neighboring Sweden will take to Copenhagen to participate in the rally. Danish authorities are in close contact with their Swedish counterparts to prevent possible rioters from crossing the boarder.

On Friday, Danish police arrested 75 mostly British nationals during a minor demonstration in central Copenhagen.
