Members of civil society planned a large action inside of COP21 today. Over 100 representatives from across civil society with spokespeople referring to the key issues left to fight for at COP21 and the movement for climate justice that will continue after Paris.
Activists gathered at the COP21 Eiffel Tower at 3:00pm today to form a giant red line down the Champs Elysee corridor in the center of the UN climate summit. Activists formed the line with over 40 meters of red fabric.
In the climate negotiations, a “red line” is an issue that cannot be compromised on. Civil society is drawing its own red lines: 0 Emissions, Equity, Finance, Justice, and Compliance. On Saturday, December 12th, the red lines will be taken into the streets for a major gathering with thousands of people along the Avenue de la Grande Armée near the Arc de Triomphe.
