Cape Town Climate March Sunday 29th November


Sunday 29th November 2015
Convene at 11 a.m.
Keizersgracht near CPUT Cape Town Campus
March starts at noon and proceeds to Parliament at 1 p.m.
Bring a poster, hat, water and sandwich and lots of hope for COP 21

We really want to make the climate march on Sunday 29th November a big event, so be there with your friends and family, a poster and walking shoes. Meet at CPUT Cape Town 11 a.m. on the 29th. The march starts at 12 and finishes at parliament at 1 p.m. There is no-one on the planet that climate change won’t affect. The politicians meeting in Paris the following week need to get a strong message from global citizens that they are not moving fast enough. Time wasting and indecision must fall.

– Patrick Dowling (Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa)

Citing security concerns, the French government has prohibited many of the Paris mobilizations and events connected to the upcoming climate summit from going forward — including the massive march being planned for November 29th.
This is a heavy blow, especially for the many organizers who have been working around the clock for months to bring hundreds of thousands of people out into the streets of Paris.
While activists in Paris are revising their plans, it’s up to the rest of us to kick it up a notch. The Global Climate March — which already consists of thousands of events, small and large, all around the world — will continue. From London to Los Angeles, Quito to Quezon City, and CAPE TOWN people are still taking to the streets.
