In France, massive planned marches of over 500,000 people were cancelled for security concerns, but people rallied to collect and display over 20,000 shoes of people who wanted to march -- including the Pope’s and the UN Secretary-General’s! -- placed at the Place de la Republique, right on the doorstep of the climate talks:

In Chesterfield, the numbers at the rally were smaller but the commitment to see our government
make wise decisions regarding climate change and be good stewards of the beautiful world God gave us is just as passionately held.

In his opening address to world leaders, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stressed: “The peoples of the world are also on the move. They have taken to the streets, in cities and towns across the world, in a mass mobilization for change… They expect each and every one of you to show leadership equal to the test. History is calling.”
