More than 2800 cities in 170 countries were involved, including many German ones like Berlin, Munich and Ulm. Everywhere in the world a lot of ambassadors for climate justice were present demonstrating for a better future. All demonstrations contributed to the biggest climate-demonstration of all time, called the People’s Climate March.
Still this was only the precursor, because on December 12th children and youth around the world will raise their voice once again, when the 20th climate conference (COP 20) will take place in Lima, Peru. Under the slogan “You’ve been discussing even longer than we’ve been alive” the protests keep going to put politicians under pressure and to achieve a clear international aim.
