The European Business Summit in Brussels got off to a slow start this year as several hundred protesters blocked access to the conference venue in a climate protest.
The demonstrators only left one door open so that climate-friendly companies could still get in.
It did not take long however for Brussels police to come an in remove the protesters. Several dozen were arrested.
The activists used the start of EBS to protest against the corporate influences on climate policy and the highlight the growing split between businesses when it comes to climate change.
