Thousands of events today for "Real Deal" Day

Global day of action on climate change
Thousands of events are taking place today around the world demanding that a "real deal" come out of the Copenhagen climate change talks. I'm on my way to one now at the U of T sponsored by the "Students against Climate Change" and "Toronto Climate Campaign".

Copenhagen is center of Global Day of Climate action

There are so many people who have converged here in Copenhagen, but amidst the cry of too many voices, one message cannot possibly be heard over the din.

There are groups here asking for indigenous rights, womens' rights, the rights of developing nations to emerge from under the oppressive thumb of developed nations, the rights of developed nations to continue with business as usual, water rights, forest rights, land-grabs, farmers, start-up energy firms…the list goes on and on.
