Walking in Babylon

Wednesday, and I am inside the Bella Center after a long chilly wait. One of the team has spent the entire night in the plenary accompanying the (last) attempt to develop a text in a consultative way. The place is now looking like a fortress as the world awaits two hurricane arrivals, over a hundred heads of state, and a riot planned for today.

Inside is like a Babylonian nightmare, every language, nationality, religion, creed and age, stalking the aircraft hanger-like corridors. You have to see, feel and if possible smell the place, the toxic extremities of consensual, zero-sum consultation. So for you, an eight minute walk through Babylon in video.
