On today’s have an audio document of yesterday’s “Reclaim Power” action put together by Tom Besley and Arthur Girling. We also report on the drama inside the negotiations as the Heads of State section of these talks gets underway. Developing countries reject the idea of the Danish chair dropping another draft text into the negotiations. The US & EU effect an apparent coup in replacing the Algerian Chair of the African group with the Ethiopian Prime Minister. In his opening statement PM Zenawi announced that he had struck a deal, would be disappointing his fellow Africans and didn’t want $400bn of annual public finances from rich countries after all. Frederika Whitehead offers her thoughts about the increasing security here at the Bella Centre and Tom Besley sends some streetside audioboos.
