While representatives from nearly 200 nations gathered inside the COP21 on Saturday to hammer out the final details of the climate agreement, climate justice activists and civil society groups took to the streets of Paris near the Arc de Triomphe to say the agreement doesn’t do enough to roll back the effects of climate change. "The Paris Agreement is a death sentence for many people," says Pablo Solón, former climate negotiator for Bolivia. "A world with temperature increases more than 3 degrees Celsius is a world where not everyone will survive."
