The tragic terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday, 13 November have caused the French Government to impose restructions on climate marches. The French government’s concerns for assuring public security are understandable and commendable. At the same time, it will be a mistake to “outlaw” public marches demanding action on climate change.
If public marches cannot happen in Paris at this moment, climate activists are hoping that public demonstrations can happen elsewhere around the world in solidarity with the global popular demand for effective climate action on the part of governments gathered in Paris for the 21st meeting of the Conference of Parties — COP 21.
