Food & Water Watch Echoes Calls to Allow Peaceful Protests in France During COP 21; U.S. 'All of the Above' Energy Policy Must Be Highlighted in Paris

WASHINGTON - “Food & Water Watch supports our French and European allies in calling for the peaceful mobilizations to go forward in Paris around the UN climate talks. Prohibiting public demonstrations undermines the legitimacy of the negotiations, and reduces the chances that meaningful agreements will be made at a time when our climate crisis needs maximum global attention. It is our hope that the French government will reconsider and allow peaceful mobilizations, and that the civil liberties of all participants will be ensured.
