Tens of Thousands March in Brussels Calling for Better Climate Change Control

BRUSSELS – Tens of thousands of demonstrators have marched in Brussels on Sunday under the banner “Claim the Climate” to urge the Belgian government to honor its commitments to combat climate change prior to world leaders meeting in Poland to discuss the future of the 2015 Paris climate accord.

The march took place in the aftermath of violent clashes in Paris where the so-called yellow vest protest against a rise in fuel prices left a toll of more than 100 people injured and over 400 under arrest.

“We claim an ambitious and socially just climate policy in Brussels. All together, tous ensemble, we go for the BIGGEST CLIMATE MOBILIZATION EVER in Belgium: CLAIM THE CLIMATE!” the organizers said on their website. “GET ORGANIZED! Lubricate your bicycle chain, dust your canoe, plan your train route, together with all your aunts and uncles, friends and neighbors!”

There have also been protests against fuel prices near the Belgian parliament inspired by France’s yellow vest movement.
