Climate March in Brussels 2nd Dec 2018

 
Så var det dags igen! Dagen till ära när nästa miljömöte går av stapeln in Katowice i Polen COP24 så passade ett flertal organisationer på att göra en stor manifestation i Bryssel. Buss, tunnelbana, spårvagn var gratis och tågen till Bryssel erbjöd halva priset vilket gjorde att de var smockfulla. Arrangörerna hoppades på 20 000 deltagare och det blev ca. 70 000! (65 000 enligt polisen 75 000 enligt arrangörerna) Kartan ovnför visade de två olika demonstrationsvägarna, den röda för cyklisterna och den gröna för fotgängarna. Krysset är centralstationen.  //   Here we go again! To honor the day when the next environmental meeting starts in Katowice in Poland COP24 a number of organisations decided to make a manifestation in Brussels. Bus, metro, tram were free and the traintickets to Brussels were offered to half price which made them completely clogged. The organizers hoped to get around 20 000 people and there were around 70 000! (65 000 according to the police 75 000 according to the organizers) The map above shows the two different paths, the red for the people on bicycles and the green for the pedestrians. The cross is the central station.
