Saturday November 4 has become the official day of global demonstrations on climate change to coincide with the United Nations Climate Talks in Nairobi, Kenya from November 6-17. Want your government officials to take global climate change seriously? If Tony Blair can change his mind, then maybe his pals in Washington DC and Australia will come around, too!
There are demonstrations already scheduled in 48 different countries, including France. Join the Paris march Saturday at 2pm at the Place du Châtelet (M° Châtelet), with the participation of Vélorution, Reseau d’Action Climate – France, Les Amis de la Terre, Agir Pour l’Environnement, Reseau Sortir du Nucleaire, GreenPeace, les Verts and les Alternatifs.

Worried you’ll freeze your butt off and waste a Saturday? Bah! Grab a few fellow frozen demonstrators after it’s over and reward yourselves with some gullet-warming beverages at one of the local wine bars!
