The inevitable uprising: in Paris, an agora to fight climate change

Over the Easter weekend, 1,500 Extinction Rebellion activists occupied Porte Saint-Denis in Paris. In the context of the intermediate rounds, they created a democratic moment to propose alternatives in the face of the climate catastrophe. Back in photos.

For three days, the unique aesthetic of Extinction Rébellion unfolded over a whole section of the main boulevards: on multicolored flags, the hourglass in the circle of the earth was painted black. There was also this gigantic mast made of bamboo and cables, on which two activists climbed. Further on, the activists climbed on haystacks. Choreographies were prepared, performed by dancers in blood-red outfits.

On the program of the “Inevitable Rebellion”: sit-ins, conferences, roundtable discussions on the climate crisis… and disillusionment among politicians.

We are in exactly the same situation as we were five years ago. We have to choose between two candidates who do not have a climate program. It’s terrible!

Ciercé, young Youth for Climate activist quoted by Reporterre

So for the organizers it is up to civil society to take on the change. To come up with alternatives, scientists and civil society figures were invited, such as Marie Toussaint (EELV, international environmental law lawyer). In a after published on social networks Monday evening, the movement invites decision-makers to “ take note » of the emergency and to « grab » formulated ideas.

The organizers conclude:

The environmental and social emergency finally had its place in this election, the media impact caused by our mobilization allowed us to see it. The president himself was forced to discuss this issue in depth.
