Kathmandu, November 29, 2015: Around thousand People marched on 28th November, 2015 from Bhrikutimandap to Basantapur Durbar Square demanding Climate Justice from upcoming , which is going to be held from November 30 –December 11 in Paris France. Country heads from all over the world will be gathering at Paris to decide the future of the world and come with new climate treaty.

A globally just agreement is at stake, and therefore people’s movement is a must to bring a just deal in the table at COP21, happening in Paris. People’s Climate March was organized in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Butwal, Hetauda, Chitwan, Damauli and Lamjung .

Dristy Shrestha one of the organizers told that “ Youth, activist, indigenous group, women, development professional from different sector joined the march to send a clear message to world that Nepal can offer sustainable models and cultural transfer to the North to the solve the climate crisis while we end the inequality”.

2015 is on track to be the hottest year in recorded history, yet current commitments from world governments going into the climate summit are simply not adding up at a moment when renewable energy is becoming a revolutionary economic force that could power a just transition away from fossil fuels while empowering communities at the front lines of climate change with the resources they need to respond to the crisis.

This weekend of worldwide mobilizations is further testament to the unprecedented surge in climate action we’ve seen in the last year and serves to pave the way for further escalation going into 2016. World leaders need to walk away from Paris with the clear understanding that they must continually raise their ambition as the only way to avert the worst impacts of the climate crisis.
