COP15: Largest climate change march in history

On December 12, 2009, thousands of people representing a broad coalition of climate and environmental organizations, activists, and other civil society organizations marched from Christiansborg Palace Square to the Bella Center.

The goal of the march was "to work towards a strong, binding climate agreement that is both fair and effective to minimize the dangerous climate change."

Despite some arrests, the overwhelming sentiment was positive and peaceful, culminating in a massive vigil outside Bella Center, where U.N. climate talks resume Monday.
