Breaking: Protests in the AIDS Conference Media Room

Two protests came through the media room just now to make noise about two issues. The first concerned Brazil's attitudes towards AIDS. A women spoke explaining that Latin America has been largely ignored at the conference and that Brazil continues to neglect the problem of AIDS.

The second group honed in on the free trade agreement between India and the EU, saying that it was backed by big pharma. They were a bit more creative and held a marriage ceremony between the EU and big pharma that was disrupted when given the opportunity to object.

Here are some pictures and videos I just captured.
