A gathering of almost 45,000 people in one city for 10 days is bound to prompt publishers to come out with special issues.
The most successful operation was COP 15 Post, a daily special by the English language Copenhagen Post. Copies were available everywhere, from metro stations to markets, apart from venues. It had a mix of stories, covering highlights of official negotiation and events outside, along with columns by visiting activists and experts. It was free, obviously cashing in on advertisements. It served as a good guide for eating out, shopping and cultural events in Copenhagen for visiting delegates.
The left parties also published specials, distributed by young volunteers predicting the death of capitalism.
