Global Activists Hold Their Own Climate Justice Summit

Activists from around the world have been meeting in a convergence center in downtown Warsaw, holding their own meetings to strategize about how to address climate change. Many of them also attended the U.N. climate summit, but walked out in frustration for the first time in 19 years on Thursday. Democracy Now!'s Amy Littlefield and Hany Massoud visited the activist center to file this report. "This has been a beautiful, valuable space," says Kenyan activist Ruth Nyambura. "If nothing comes out of this COP, what the youth constituency of the UNFCCC has done has really, really changed the game."
