The United Nations Climate Change Conference held from November 28th to December 11th in Durban, South Africa was tasked with creating a new global road map for reducing carbon emissions. However, the obstructive role played by the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitters- the United States and China- has provoked social movements around the world to label the summit "The Durban Disaster."
Climate Justice Now!, a broad coalition of social movements and civil society, declared that decisions resulting from the UN COP17 climate summit have created a new regime of climate apartheid.
