After walking 1500km over 59 days, the People's Pilgrimage for Climate Justice made it to Paris.back to listing
by Tessa Tennant,
They've done it! Not even the Paris police could stop our pilgrims.
All public gatherings in the city have been banned so our brave pilgrims had to walk the final day alone. One by one they walked into the center, their solitude a sharp contrast to the group's laughter and community these past days and weeks.
But nothing was going to stop them completing their 1500km walk from Rome to Paris.
This song kept them walking when times got hard And here at the end as they reached their destination it gave expression to their joy, their love and their hope.
