Around 30 000 people gathered this Sunday afternoon in Brussels for a protest march under the umbrella of the Climate Coalition which represents 96 organizations from all over the country.
The stood as one voice to demand that the climate issue be placed at the top of the political EU agenda ahead of the 27th International Climate Conference taking place next month in Egypt from November 6 to 18.

And go ride 2-3 hours together through Brussels without having to worry about traffic lights or stop as the police regulates traffic.
The idea behind the “critical mass” is when the participants become so numerous that they reverse the balance of power in traffic. The Critical Mass creates a safe space; it protects its participants from traffic. The concept alludes to nuclear physics, where a critical mass of fissionable material triggers a nuclear chain reaction.
Vegan activists have found a new and clever way to promote their cause in Brussels. On about two dozen lights traffic lights, strategically positioned at major crossroads of the capital. As you can see in the pics, drivers now get red lights flashing a â€œSTOP MEATâ€ while the green lights promotes to â€œGO VEGANâ€. Apparently the idea originally came from a graffiti artist and militant for veganism/animal rights going under the name of Misteruncertain.
