Protesters raise their voices in Copenhagen

Protests are continuing in Copenhagen outside the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

This video, taken by a protestor, provides more insight:

Thousands of others are upset with the direction that the conference is taking and are unsatisfied with the progress that has been made. This footage is from a walk-out of indigenous people from the Bella Center:

And the protests are raging outside the walls of the conference as well. Thousands have taken to the streets outside the Bella Center (the metro stop there has been shut down) and many have been arrested. Here's an account from an arrested protester:
