Climate first – People first – Bicycle first?

As probably many have noticed, yesterday was the huge climate demonstration in Copenhagen. As I passed by Charlottenborg square on my way to the library (yes someone still have some school to do), a large group of people had already gathered, and as I stood there more and more joined in. It’s so far the largest demonstration ever held on danish ground, and the newspaper Politiken says there were 100.000 people walking towards Bella Center.
There were around 500 organizations from all over the world participating, and these guys came all the way from France…bicycling. I didn’t get a talk with them, but the little writing on the side of the sign says velorution.org (wish I knew french better than I do). I like their modest slogan “One less car”. Imagine we all thought the same…
