On December 16th was Reclaim Power, a non-violent demonstration which aimed to host a people’s assembly just outside the official summit, for people’s voices to be heard. Danish police, unprovoked, reacted very violently, with teargas, pepper spray and baton attacks. A quarter of the demonstration (250 out of roughly 1000) was also arrested, but the assembly took place, if not where initially planned.
I was with the blue block (the main body of the demonstration) until they got completely surrounded by police, around 13h00. I managed to climb a lightpost and to get pictures of police violence against the demonstrators. The full gallery is accessible over there.
