Thousands in Cancun
Social movements act with the schedule of the conference negotiations to engage in a massive mobilization this Tuesday.
This was the second march organized by the Via Campesina during COP 16 to pressure the UN to take more effective measures in the fight against global warming.
The social organizations already are referring to "Cancun-hagen," communicating their message that the failure at Copenhagen would be repeated in Mexico.
Besides the large police presence, the march of almost 10 thousand people occurred without any conflicts. Besides social movements and activists from all around the world, the event included the presence of the Bolivian Ambassador to the U.N., Pablo Solon, and with the representatvie from Paraguay´s government, Miguel Lovero.
