Friends of the Earth International Supports African Call, Africa Moves to Stop Rich Country Power Grab and Protect Kyoto Targets
"We support African countries' demands for Kyoto targets and mandatory emissions reductions for rich countries. We denounce the dirty negotiating tactics of rich countries which are trying to change the rules and tilt them in their own favor. Developed countries are stalling these negotiations as Africa attempts to move them forward."
The Danish Presidency has proposed for today "President's informal consultations," which appeared to be an attempt to collapse two separate negotiating tracks in Copenhagen and thereby "abolish" the Kyoto Protocol. This would allow rich countries to dodge their emissions reduction obligations.
