The tragic events in Paris this week have naturally brought questions of security to the fore. But as with any public demonstration, Greenpeace will be working with the relevant authorities and organisers to ensure that the People’s Climate March in London will be a safe, secure, mobilisation of people who want real progress in tackling climate change. This demonstration will carry a message of hope and a belief in a better future – and what better response could there be to these awful recent events?
