The message of the march – “Climate injustice is not just about CO2!”

No One Is Illegal says, “No borders. No fortress Europe. Freedom of movement for all and the right to stay without fear of militarization and climate chaos.”

As noted in a past campaign blog, the United Nations World Water Development Report says that by 2030 nearly half of the world’s population will be living in areas of high water stress. In March 2009, the Globe and Mail reported that, “The report says that within the next 30 to 50 years, there will be ‘substantial population displacements’ due to global warming, and that those affected, whom it terms ‘climate-change refugees,’ will need new water and sanitation services.”
