Samsung’s MWC press conference was plagued by problems on Sunday evening.

The show kicked off over 20 minutes after it was supposed to, due to technical problems.

Once it finally started, a Greenpeace protester had to be ushered away from the stage after holding up a banner urging Samsung to recycle the Galaxy Note 7, which was discontinued last year.

Samsung is believed to have over two million recalled Note 7 handsets lying around, and it’s not yet clear what it plans to do with them.

Recent reports claimed that it wanted to re-release it in emerging markets, but a Samsung India spokesperson has poured cold water on that rumour.

According to Business Insider, the Greenpeace protester wasn’t alone.

More Greenpeace activists were spotted scaling the conference building ahead of the show. Venue staff reportedly prevented them from unfurling a banner.
