    In December, French President Emmanuel Macron announced his intention to hold a nationwide referendum on constitutional amendments related to the fight against climate change.

    Activists gather at Paris’s Place de la Republic for a march, calling for urgent action against climate change and damage to the environment.

    The activists who are set to take part in the march, criticise the new climate law supported by French President Emmanuel Macron.
