Cyclists take part in the global march for climate of 29 November

On the eve of Paris COP21, the global march for climate will be followed by a bike ride aimed to call for binding measures against climate change.

Citizens around the world will march together on November 29th, by foot or bike, to call for action against climate change. The event was announced by 130 organisations, gathered in the Climate Coalition, on the eve of Paris Conference of Parties that was established in order for the UN member countries to reach a binding agreement on climate.

Over 2,000 events and 50 demonstrations to take place all over the world have been planned: the main goal is to pressure from below the decision-makers that will gather together in Paris from 30 November to 11 December. Due to recent Paris terrorist attacks, authorities banned marches and demonstrations in the coming weeks, including the march for climate.

“We will find a way for people in Paris to make the call for climate justice heard, and we encourage everyone around the world to join a Global Climate March and raise their voices louder than ever. There’s never been a greater need” says the French Climate Coalition, adding that: “Many of the events already planned in Paris for the two weeks of COP21 are also going forward, including the Pathway to Paris concert with Thom Yorke, Patti Smith, Flea and others”.
