UPDATE: ‘Reclaim Power!’ action tomorrow morning

Please chip in to support more articles like this. Support rabble.ca in its summer fundraiser today for as little as $5 per month!

It's just past midnight now here in Copenhagen and we are all getting ready for the big action tomorrow morning.

At 8:00 am (2:00 am EST) we will be joining with likely thousands of others at Taarnby Station to march to the Bella Center (where the official climate ‘talks' are taking place).

The delegates attending the summit there are being asked to walk out and join us at 10:00 am (4:00 am EST). It is known that many will do so.

Then together the plan is to hold a people's assembly for climate justice starting at 12:00 noon (6:00 am EST) outside the Bella Center for the remainder of the day.

As noted in the flyer for the action, "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 and to send a clear message to the world calling for climate justice."

For the last several days the police in Copenhagen have been making ‘pre-emptive' arrests and there is real concern about what they will do tomorrow.

We will keep you posted as the morning progresses.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
