March for Paris, now more than ever

Posted on November 24, 2015 by Oisín Coghlan

We need you now more than ever.

The French Government has cancelled the People's Climate March in Paris on Sunday, amid ongoing security fears. The people of Paris may not be able to march for climate justice but we can.

This movement is bigger than any one march, and we need everyone now more than ever. The Global Climate March -- which already consists of thousands of events, small and large, all around the world -- goes on.
