FRANCE-CLIMATE-WARMING-COP21

Shoes belonging to famous people such as Pope Francis were displayed on the Place de la Republique Sunday morning (November 29) as part of an installation of over 10,000 shoes, as activists put up posters around the French capital.

The installation replaced a giant march for climate change which was forbidden by French authorities following the deadly attacks in the capital on November 13, which cost 130 lives.

The organizers behind the project said it was a way of showing the determination of protesters in their fight against climate change, and allowed them to still send a strong message on the eve of the U.N. climate conference (COP21) hosted by France, which will bring together more than 140 world leaders.
