D12 Mass Mobilisation + Civil Disobedience Action
12/12/2015 @ 08:00 - 17:00
From the www.d12.paris website:
We want to have the last word as the climate talks conclude. And we’ll get it by speaking in the language of movements: by putting tens of thousands of people into the streets of Paris, and making sure business as usual cannot proceed as long as world governments fail to do what’s needed.
This will be a day of mass mobilization and actions in the streets. We will take to the streets of Paris with our determination, our diversity and our creativity; to resist and to build. Our movement is here to last, and it will be shaped by every one of us. Everything we do, we will do together.
The Paris moment will be defined not by what happens in the negotiating halls, but in the streets of Paris and around the world. Politicians aren’t the only ones with power. If enough people agree that it’s time for the world to move in a new direction, and push together, the world will begin to move.
- On Saturday morning, an act of civil disobedience: “red lines”, representing the minimum limits necessary for a planet that is fair and offers quality of life, will encircle le Bourget. Symbolising these lines, thousands of people carrying giant inflatable objects will surround the conference centre and occupy the public area
- On Saturday afternoon, a mass gathering of people: several human chains will be formed around the Place de la République in Paris. These human chains will symbolise the alternatives, the resistance movements that form today’s movement for climate justice. They will show what the solutions are for a future with quality of life, respect for the environment and justice for all.
