Massive protests against building 3,000 inexpensive apartments within a wall at Kløvermarken football fields on the island of Amager has led the Socialist People's Party - which originally supported the move - to change its position on the issue.
'It's clear we've been affected by the resistance,' stated Lotte Thiim Bertelsen, the party's member on the committee on environmental and technical matters. She indicated that the Socialist People's Party can only support a project which would not affect the current housing and athletic areas at Kløvermarken.
A petition was signed by over 10,000 Copenhageners opposed to the building plans. The Social Democrats, who sponsored the plan, are disappointed but not defeated, and are continuing to attempt to find a solution to the plan.
