UN climate talks occupied!
Today at 3pm, on the final day of the UN climate talks and as the main plenary was taking place, people including activists from 'Occupy COP17' occupied the conference centre where the talks are being held.
WDM campaigner Kirsty Wright who is at the talks was quoted on the Guardian blog about the occupation saying that "the protesters were accusing the UK and other rich countries of trying to escape their responsibilities for addressing global warming. They were also opposed to the current proposals for a new treaty, corporate power in the talks and the role of the World Bank in delivering finance to help poorer countries cope with climate change."

Update: Here are some videos that Kirsty recorded earlier in the day.
