Global Justice Ecology Project (GJEP) Board member Hiroshi Kanno is manhandled by security during the GJEP occupation of the Moon Palace in Cancún, Mexico on the final day of the high-level UN Climate negotiations occurring there.
GJEP staged the occupation in protest of the silencing of dissent and the marginalization of the voices of women, Indigenous Peoples, youth, developing countries, small island nations, small farmers and environmental groups inside its fenced off grounds.
