Ambassador Lumumba, What Do You Really Think? by Naomi Klein With The UpTake On Wednesday in Copenhagen, Naomi Klein interviewed Lumumba Stanislaus Di-Aping, the chief negotiator for the G77, the largest developing country bloc represented at the climate summit in Copenhagen. Over the course of the negotiations, Ambassador Lumumba has gained a reputation for candor, putting the stakes for Africa in stark, emotional terms. This was Ambassador Lumumba?s first chance to react to the shocking news that Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi had crossed the G77 and backed the EU position for 2 degree temperature increased and only $10-billion in financing.
