The Copenhagen COP 15 has come and gone. Grassroots organizers experienced a hijacked decision-making process, resistance by some governments to commit to a legally binding agreement, and numerous corporations peddling green capitalism as a way of resolving climate change. Since Copenhagen, climate justice movements have been organizing worldwide for future actions.
