Protesters marched from the Plains of Abraham to the Parliament Buildings where a stage was set up for speeches over the lunch hour, before continuing the march into the Old City in the afternoon.

Whether you attended a march, walked by a march, just glanced at social media or at the next morning’s papers, it was impossible to ignore. Two co-ordinated days of action, on Sept. 20 and 27, saw nearly eight million people take to the streets, demanding that world leaders act more decisively to counteract climate change.
