brussels - A protest march for a better climate policy has mobilized about 65,000 people in Brussels. The attendance figure is an estimate of the Belgian police. The procession moved from the North Station in the capital to the Cinquantenaire, where speeches and performances were held.
According to Belgian media, it is the largest 'climate march' in Belgium ever. The meeting is not a coincidence just before the start of the international climate summit, which is officially opened on Monday in Katowice, Poland. World leaders and scientists want to agree on concrete measures to limit global warming to a maximum of 2 degrees and more preferably 1.5 degrees.
