Naomi Klein profiles the next generation of protesters who will descend on Copenhagen:

There is certainly a Seattle quality to the Copenhagen mobilisation:
the range of groups that will be there; the diverse tactics that will
be on display; and the developing-country governments ready to bring
activist demands into the summit. But Copenhagen is not merely another
Seattle. It feels, instead, as though the progressive tectonic plates
are shifting, creating a movement that builds on the strengths of an
earlier era but also learns from its mistakes.
