At a bit before noon today activists inside the Bella Center began to, in their words, reclaim power. Those that were let in that is. Friends of the Earth, Avaaz and others had their accreditation revoked earlier in the day. In fact Friends of the Earth International head Nnimmo Bassey was ejected from the venue.
The practical goal was to unite with marches already begun earlier in the morning working their way towards the Bella Center. Twitter reports coming in indicated that tear gas had already been used and arrests begun.
