Marches May Be Banned at Paris Climate Talks
They’re feeling the heat. French officials say the planned COP21 climate talks will still go ahead after Friday’s terror attacks, but in a pared-down fashion. While 196 heads of state and roughly 10,000 government officials will work to negotiate a historic agreement on global warming, authorities will reportedly be canceling many surrounding events, like marches and concerts. Activists hope to save the Nov. 29 Global Climate March, which aims to pressure governments into cutting greenhouse gas emissions, but they’re unlikely to get a green light from security forces.
