COPENHAGEN (IPS/TerraViva) “We hope things change, because the (global warming) problem is urgent. We see that the first to suffer the effects of climate change are the poorest countries,” said Belgian activist Clodimir Bogaert, who works in educational projects with Oxfam Belgium.

He also said climate pollution would end up costing the world much more than what is needed to act now.

Bogaert came from his country specifically for Saturday’s march. “We are here with delegations from different non-governmental organizations, and different unions, and all of us came by train,” he told TerraViva.

“We are waiting to see what will happen in the last days (of COP15), when the big decisions are taken,” he said, with an air of optimism.
