COP17 has not been a success diplomatically even though it may have been a financial success.  This saddens me, because our government in South Africa has exposed itself as highly reactionary.  Peaceful demonstrations have been disrupted in various places particularly on the Global Day of Action and then on the 9th of December.  This cannot sit well with the reporters of the international press.

South Africa has failed to produce a successful COP 17.  Our government has exposed its violent tendencies.  I am ashamed to think that our government has turned into a suppressor of its people and this concerns me as the branch co-ordinator of Earthlife Johannesburg
