Climate Camp Setup - VideosTagged as: climate_camp g20 setup
The urban Climate Camp at Bishopsgate by the European Climate Exchange has been reported to have over 2000 people and 150 tents, and has been described as a hugely impressive infrastructure. There has been numerous theatrical performances, and soundsystems alongside compost toilets, a medical tent, a children's area, a couple of working kitchens, speakers, banners across the street and numerous workshops. Many people have been picnicing there and the camp has been attracting passers by and city workers. There have been police lines on either side of the camp but people are allowed in and out. There has been dancing near the police lines and the atmosphere has generally been described as very good, with office workers waiving out of windows at the campers.
The G20 Climate Camp occupied Bishopsgate between Liverpool Street Station and the Climate Exchange at around noon today. Here are some quick video clips showing people setting up the camp.
