Once again, there is an urgency to act against global warming and this urgency will be at the heart of the negotiations held during the upcoming yearly conference of the UN about climate changes, the famous COP24 taking place from December 3 to 14, 2018 in Katowice in southern Poland.
On the occasion a new call for an international movement has been launched. The International Walk for the Climate will take over several cities on Saturday December 8, 2018 including Paris.
“Today, we no longer have the luxury to wait. Global warming is being conjugated in the present tense everywhere around the planet and climate disasters are multiply already making many casualties, often excluded from us” we can read on the Facebook page of the event.
This International Walk for the Climate on December 8, 2018 invites all people wishing to put a solidarity and ecological transition to the heart of all the decisions taken for our future and the planet’s.
“On December 8, 2018, let’s all meet in the streets, at the squares of our cities and villages, all over the world to make our alarms heard, our bells, our ringtones and everything that could make the climate alarm ring. Let’s make this alarm ring out all over the planet so that nowhere can subsist the least doubt about the responsibility of our decision-makers and the urgency to act. Let’s make the extend of this alarm creates an unparalleled wake of our societies and trigger an irresistible movement to protect our rights and the planet’s” the Collectif Citoyen “Il est encore temps” [There is still Time] wrote, the group being at the origin of the walk.
For the record, “Il est encore temps” is a civic, non-violent movement independent from any political party and committed for the fight against global warming, created on September 8, 2018, the day when for the first time in France, over 130,000 people walked for the climate.
