Last night the Oxfam “big heads” (last seen playing football at the G20 summit in Pittsburgh) arrived on the scene in Copenhagen to remind world leaders of the importance of negotiating a fair, ambitious, and binding global deal.

Dressed as President Obama and other world leaders, the Oxfam campaigners stood in line as though waiting to have their mug shots taken. Each held a sign reading “History will judge me”–a reminder that the actions they take today will carry far-reaching consequences.
