CALL OUT FOR INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY

WEDNESDAY!

Free all the climate justice Prisoners in Copenhagen!
Stop police states and repressive capitalist summits!
For our autonomy on the streets!

Take simultaneous actions everywhere on WEDNESDAY 16th December.

During the ‘Global Day of Action’ in Copenhagen on Saturday – where up to 100,000
climate justice activists were protesting against the failed UN climate summit –
Danish police indiscriminately made a mass arrests of 968 activists. They have
expressed severe physical discomfort and have no access to water, medical attention
or toilet facilities. Many are reported to have urinated themselves while detained on
the ground.

The next day, during the "Hit the Production" demo on Sunday. Without any
provocation, the police charged violently at the crowd and began more than
250 arrests, forcing people to sit on the ground in 2 degree temperatures
while cuffed. The scenes seem to be an exact repetition of the human
rights violations from the day before.

Why the 16th?

In Copenhagen, the 16th will be the day for a mass action at the Summit
itself! Our goal is to disrupt the sessions and open a space inside the UN
area to hold a People's Assembly. The assembly will give a voice to those
who are not being heard, it will be an opportunity to change the agenda,
to discuss the real solutions.
After 15 years of negotiations and no real solutions to the climate
crisis, we say enough! No more markets based solutions, no to corporate
greed and short term politics deciding our future! No to colonialism and
the land-grabs taking place in local and indigenous communities!

JOIN US AND TAKE ACTION ANYWHERE YOU ARE TO RECLAIM POWER OVER OUR OWN
FUTURE!
Call for international solidarity! Take actions simultaneously! Protest
against unjust arrests, police violence and capitalist summit.

See you on the streets!

The Date

The date of this is wrong, action's been called at the Danish embassy in London on Thursday 17th, at 4pm

can this be changed before it confuses people? Ta

yeah, why are you doing it Thursday?

all solidarity actions around the world on Wednesday, and you're doing it on Thursday? Any particular reason?

joint action much better, Thursday 4pm

It's going to be a joint action, we can scatter after.
The carnival crowd is going to join the spikey crowd!

The Danish government has shown that even the low expectations some might have had from the official summit are too much to ask for their reactionary minds. Sustainable change and real action can only come from grassroots.

4pm Thursday
bring bells and whistles and bike locks.
