Friends of the Earth suspended from UN climate talks
Friends of the Earth today were refused entry to the UN climate conference in Copenhagen despite having the relevant accreditation.
Nnimmo Bassey the Friends of the Earth International Chair said:
"Our organizations represent millions of people around the world and provide a critical voice promoting climate justice inside the UN. On the inside and the outside, all the rules have gone out the window - organizations such as Friends of the Earth that support peaceful action are being barred while developing countries concerns are being trampled in the plenary."
This is a shocking turn in events and we are working on our response now to the UNFCCC.
We will keep you updated.
