Climate March Dublin

Over a million people worldwide marched yesterday to call for political action on climate change. About 5,000 people attended the march in Dublin, which culminated in a rally outside Leinster House. Speakers here included broadcaster Duncan Stewart, Chairman of Friends of the Earth Ireland Oisin Coughlan and Lorna Gold of Trocaire.

Some pictures of the Dublin march below, and some great pictures from elsewhere around the world from the Guardian:
