People’s Global Action Rally
On Friday December 2, 2011 the People’s Global Action took to the Geneva streets. Over 100 activists from around the world gathered at Place des Nations, better known as the "Broken Chair" in front of the UN entrance and called for the rights of all migrants (regardless of status) to be recognized and respected in the Global Forum on Migration and Development deliberations. Chanting and cheering loudly, it was a sight to behold. All PGA participants were united in calling for the recognition of migrants rights in the GFMD, and this was vocalized throughout the rally with loud chants of "Migrants Rights are Human Rights!".
In solidarity with 1000 Durbans, the rally also called on the UN and governments to take up real solutions to address climate change and prevent further mass displacement of our communities.
