Meet the COP in COP18 – A Secret Policeman (yes, it’s another disaster for environmental journalism)

How apt to learn that as COP18 struts along in Doha, Qatar towards the first ever protesting demonstration in the country (organized, as it happens, by the local Government), a poet is jailed for eternity or a little less….in Doha, Qatar.

Wiki notes that Al Jazeera didn’t report on this perhaps because they are based out of Qatar. Omnologos notes that  BBC avoided the term “COP18” so that google searches wouldn’t reveal undesired results.
