WWF statement on COP21 mobilisations
In response to the news, Pierre Cannet, Head, Climate, Energy and Sustainable Infrastructures, WWF-France said:
"While the difficult situation facing the authorities right now is understandable, it is unfortunate that some key outside mobilisations have been cancelled.
"A strong civil society voice is critical to the negotiating process and the climate movement will find other ways to amplify the urgency for action without compromising security.
"WWF, working with other French organisations, will continue looking at creative ways of mobilising people before, during and after the COP.
"We will ensure that civil society mobilisations in other countries are bigger than ever because we must continue to get leaders to hear the voices of citizens across the world calling for urgent climate action. Some 57 marches, in addition to over two thousand events, are currently planned for the weekend of 28-29 November in capitals around the world."
