Indigenous Use Kayakactivsm In Paris To Keep Fossil Fuels In The Ground

 Demanding their voices be heard, their rights respected and that fossils fuels be left in the ground to spare humanity and Mother Earth, Indigenous people from around the around the world made their latest mark on the ongoing climate negotiations in Paris on Sunday by crossing the Bassin de la Villette in the heart of the French city, assembled in a flotilla of traditional boats, kayaks, and canoes. In addition to the action on Paris' largest lake, the groups also held a press event where they presented a joint declaration articulating their sacred and collective demand that in order to preserve balance and harmony with the planet's living systems, the ongoing COP21 climate talks must go further than powerful governments have so far allowed.
