People rally ahead of Paris climate talks


Concerned citizens have gathered and marched in their thousands to express their concern about the lack of prompt and decisive government action on climate change.

 

Peoples Climate March events have taken place in all Australian capital cities and more than 50 regional centres across the country since friday evening. In Brisbane, around 5,000 people gathered in Queens Park before a march from the CBD to Southbank. Speakers at the rally included Pacific islanders whose nations are facing devastating sea level rise.

 

If left unchecked, climate change is predicted to have catastrophic consequences for ocean ecosystems and the whales and dolphins that depend on them.
