Lima COP 20 People’s Climate March in photos

An estimated 15,000 people took to the streets of Lima on Wednesday 10, 2014 December for the People’s Climate March, calling for the ministers to shift to 100 per cent clean energy by 2050.

The march follows the delivery of a 2.2 million person petition by 100 children to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, Peruvian President Ollanta Humala and COP President Manuel Pulgar Vidal at the UN climate talks in Lima.

Avaaz Campaign Director, Iain Keith, said: “The public call for 100% clean energy has gone mainstream, and finally leaders are starting to respond with ambitious targets. Now, from Lima to Paris, Ministers must defend and deliver what the world needs: firm commitments to totally end carbon pollution.”
