Video: Rio+20 Occupy action at official summit yesterday

June 21, 2012. International youth delegates occupied the corridor of the UN summit on Thursday afternoon and tore up a symbolic declaration called “The Future We Bought” to denounce the cooptation of the negotiations by corporate interests.
