Demonstrators march in the streets of Bonn on Saturday protesting against climate change to those at the COP23 talks. Rough cut (no reporter narration)
ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Around 2,000 demonstrators gather in the streets of Bonn on Saturday (November 11) hoping to send a message to delegates meeting at the United Nations climate talks. Wearing colourful costumes and sitting on floats, the activists paid tribute not just to the environment but the first day of Germany's traditional Carnival celebrations. The negotiations in Bonn, to write a rulebook for the 2015 Paris climate agreement, have been overshadowed by what to do after President Donald Trump decided in June to withdraw the U.S. from the pact, instead preferring to promote coal and oil. Fiji, presiding over the summit known as COP23 as president, is the first small island state to preside at U.N. climate negotiations since they began in the 1990s.
