"December 16th, 2009, thousands [Tenney here:  I could have sworn the woman yelled on her loudspeaker that they had a group of about 300 people, although people have been gathering in other locations to protest.]  gather to participate in the Reclaim Power march in Copenhagen Denmark. The idea behind the march is to meet delegates who were walking out from the Bella Center, the location of the United Nation's Climate Change Conference (COP15), and host a people's assembly outside. The peaceful march, an act of civil disobedience, turned violent when police attacked protestors pushing to get over the Bella Center fence to meet with delegates from the walk out."
