Put yourself in their shoes: Paris presents new twist on climate march

Around 10,000 pairs of shoes line the French capital’s Place de la République in stark contrast with the 120,000 police and armed forces patrolling the streets of Paris.

With large public gatherings temporarily banned in the wake of the deadly Paris attacks, activists have sent the shoes as a symbol of their support for a climate change march, which had been due to take place on Sunday (November 29).

Pope Francis has shoes represented on the Place, as well as United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon.

Security in the capital has been further ramped up as world leaders begin to arrive for the UN’s 21st climate change conference, COP21.
