March for Climate Justice

6 October 2009


Around noon today, 2,000 people from the Asian Peoples Solidarity for Climate Justice will march from Peace Park to the United Nations ESCAP building.

Their intention is to raise awareness within Thailand and globally of the need for a fair and safe agreement on climate change in Copenhagen.

They will be joined by the Urban Poor Coalition which is highlighting the impact of climate change on urban poor communities. ECO understands that a paper-mache world and an hourglass, representing time for action is slipping away, will accompany their powerful message.

They will arrive here around midday.

Here’s some video from the march:
