Taking to the streets
Yesterday we left the negotiation halls and the Zona Hotelera behind and headed into Cancun city for the global day of action against climate change. We joined Christian Aid partners from Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Peru, and the Philippines as well as our Aprodev colleagues from across Europe and marched through the city centre calling for climate justice.
It was refreshing and energising to be with so many others, especially those from Central America and to realise the global movement is still going strong despite recent disappointments. TV cameras were there to tell our story to the world, but we wonder how much the politicians locked in talks inside the Moon Palace will notice. Time will tell.Categories: COP16 blog, Christian Aid, UN Talks
