Police stand outside the boundary of the climate camp. The Climate Camp in the City was set up  in front of the European Climate Exchange during the G20 meetings in 2009. The aim of the camp was to protest against the proposed carbon trading schemes that many feel will not solve the climate crisis, while generating windfall profits for traders. The camp maintained a policy of non-violence, despite police actions to the contrary. The protestors were forcefully evicted from the site late in the evening after the mainstream media had left.  The protests at the G20 have sparked investigations into policing policies in the UK. (©Robert vanWaarden)
