> •   Develop idea(s) for last day mobilization(s)

> Agree to political compromise
>
>
> *Reactions from the room*
>
> •      Need to talk more about how to support global south/southern groups
> and channel resources to them ? suggestion is pool resources together
> •      Should be about gobal mobilization in as many capital cities of the
> world as possible at the beginning, with strong people's demands. Make the
> case for these mobilizations to happen nationally to strengthen the movement
> •       there will also be a massive mobilization on the 12th – what is it
> going to look like still needs to be defined, who is going to be part of
> it. And the message is we are all committed to the climate movement, all in
> it together and organisations that have the capacity to bring people will
> be the key organisers. Unclear yet whether it will be decentralized.
> •      flood wall street following the PCM was great but it was very small
> and did not get enough media attention. Hopefully in Paris, we can get the
> people marching on the 1st day to participate in an action that is easy,
> that everyone can participate in at the end. Respecting different tactics
> but something big, simple, but also very powerful like a sit-in
> •      The whole point is escalation so it can't be will do big in
> beginning and TRY to do something in the end. Does not have to be
> incredibly radical but has to be about escalation. Need agreement on that
> that all movement would come together under one banner with radical
> messaging
> •      Agree that we need escalation and big moment at the end like non
> violent direct action. How do we include more people in that end moment,
> need to keep open the possibility for groups to engage differently – if
> some groups want to march, than they should as long as complementary.
> •       march at the beginning will reenergize the people and people
> demand. Will need to go home and discuss whether it's possible to mobilize
> back home, discuss with partners ; need strong people demands
> •      We haven't spoken about the other movements we need to include and
> involve – like cyber movements. Focus on trying to escalate. Need to focus
> on main causes like financial stakeholders, etc
> •      What is the message at the end moment ? Need to discuss further
> •      The questions for the WG were what are the dates, when are we
> calling people to Paris = pressing questions for the Working Group.
> •      It is important that we build powerful national platforms with
> concrete people's demands
> •      It is important it happens at every level. Which is why we came to
> the conclusion that we should have mass mobilisations in our own cities.
> •      Other WG was looking at escalation, and there are ideas and people
> working on it ;
> •      On the last day, we said it's important that the mobilization at
> the end is vibrant, massive, and escalates. So cannot be a few thousand
> people; Which is why this is the moment where we want to call people to
> come to Paris. We have an opportunity to flood the streets of Paris then.
> We now need to flesh out what kind of mobilization we're talking about.

> *CONCLUSIONS reached through consensus*
>
> •      Call for large-scale mobilizations November 28th/29th in capitals

> •      Call for mass mobilizations in Paris on December 12th that

>
>
> *Working group 3. Escalation of mobilization across both weeks*
>
> *OUTCOMES FROM DISCUSSIONS –*
> •      The French coalition needs to work out what will happen during the
> 1st week as CSO space will only start on week 2 – currently, no plans for
> 1st week
> •      Consensus on need to escalate throughout the two weeks
> •      Focus on the 2nd week as that is the moment when most people and
> organisations are in Paris
> •      Need to map out plans, who plans to come where, what kind of
> activities are they organizing. French groups will create the space but not
> do the organizing of everything
> •      Need to work on the narrative and the story we want to tell through
> our actions, cannot just have a calendar of actions on the website
>
> *Reactions from the room*
> •      Will need a space to educate the public during the two weeks –
> which one? Daily newsletter, university?
> •      Alternatiba village in the center of Paris – date to be determined.
> Most likely about middle weekend but final decision will be made end of
> April
> •      French coalition not organising stuff over both weeks because we’re
> focusing on 2nd week right now and creating that CSO space. We want to
> create a space for international groups to co-organize, brainstorm and
> propose way forward
> •      Need clearer guidelines for the survey to ensure we respond to it
> effectively
>
> *Working group 4. Overarching narrative*
>
> *OUTCOMES FROM DISCUSSIONS – What is the narrative for and who for?*
>
> *What is a narrative for ?*
> Could be…
> •              To express the movement more broadly moving together to
> Paris and beyond (avoid Copenhagen-style cliff)
> •              To get people to Paris for a mobilization
> •              A counter narrative to the false solutions that may claim
> we can solve the climate crisis with: BAU + Geo-engineering
> The groups was mostly talking about the first option…
> Potential audiences…
> •      Public, Networks/movements, Press
> •      lots of options in play
> Challenges…
> ◦      To learn from Copenhagen – don’t tell a lie that Paris will fix the
> climate (people were arrested in Copenhagen for this lie)
> ◦      To ensure the narrative speaks to southern perspectives and works
> to mobilise southern groups
>
> *OUTCOMES FROM DISCUSSIONS - Need more in the narratives on:*
> •      System change needs to be front and center
> •      Southern voices
> •      Adaptation and climate impacts now – urgency
> •      Keeping fossil fuels in the ground
> •      A just transition to 100% renewable energy
> •      Climate change links to everything – gender, employment etc.
>
> *OUTCOMES FROM DISCUSSIONS*
> *Areas of general support*
> •              Southern voices
> •              Climate change is already happening, it’s a reality for
> farmers in the south. Solutions must involve support for people adapting to
> climate change.
> •              People vulnerable to climate impacts are not victims, they
> are often innovative and driving solutions.
> •              We need to support indigenous practices that often embody
> solutions to the climate crisis.
> •              This issue is about people – people who are impacted,
> people who have solutions.
> •              This is an issue of Northern historical responsibility,
> those that are most vulnerable have done the least to cause the problem –
> there is also inequality, injustice and elites in both North and South
> *System change*
> •      To tackle climate change we need systemic change, we need move away
> from economies that put profits and consumption before people and planet.
> •      Climate change is an everything issue – encompasses a massive
> diversity of issues
> *Urgency*
> •              Highlight climate impacts on the ground to emphasise
> climate change is a real world issue, happening now.
> •              Impacts on peoples lives now.
> •              UNFCCC timeframe doesn’t reflect the real world.
> •              Attack corporates and fossil fuel industry
> •              Say no to false solutions and corporate climate criminals.
> •              Fossil fuel companies are in league with governments – this
> is why COP doesn’t work, but there are alternatives.
> •              Balance doom with a vision/hope
> •              We are the powerful positive actors, we are life – fossil
> fuels are death
> •              We still need to inspire people to join the movement, to
> feel that they can make a difference and provide a vision for the future.
> •              This can build on the examples of people out there stopping
> fossil fuel projects and the people who are already living sustainable
> livelihoods (especially examples from the global south)
> *Paris*
> •      WE are the ones who will make Paris historic (not the COP outcome),
> because we are the movement and we have the solutions
> •      Paris is a moment to build movements – show we are powerful and
> will fight into 2016 and beyond to solve the climate crisis
> •      It takes roots to weather the storm (Climate Justice Alliance
> message for the Peoples’ Climate March in New York)
> •      It’s does NOT start and end with Paris
> •      Its NOT all about the US and China
>
>
> *Reactions from the room*
> •      In the just transition concept, it’s beyond the energy transition,
> it’s about ensuring we don’t replicate big corporate models. Big
> corporations are moving into RE and that’s not a model that we want, we
> would want community-controled energy
> •      What kind of economic model do we want?
> •      We need to bring in anti-nuke movements into the climate movement
> •      Communities are experimenting, important to amplify these
> •      Important to have strong southern presence in Paris – need people’s
> agenda grassroot solutions amplified (agroecology, etc), find real
> solutions on the ground, grassrooot vs. False solutions
> •      True that people on the ground have the power and the solutions but
> at the same time we know Paris will be a failure – we need to use this
> power that we have to support those that are facing the impacts of a
> climate change they didn’t cause. As southern and northern movements, we
> need to practically tackle existing impacts of CC, not just focusing on the
> UNFCCC. How do we push northern governments to support these communities in
> the south, etc
> •      Need to broaden the scope of false solutions, not only work on the
> energy-related ones. Also about false solutions in agriculture
> •      Climate issues are not only hi-jacked by fossil fuel companies but
> also about other industrial vested interests
> •      Willingness to add southern voices in the narrative, this is good.
> Need to take it a step further – what is the role of southern governments
> in all this? Which ones should we support and which ones should we tackle?
> Would be helpful to support some countries as a movement. Need to push
> countries to become champions in the negotiation
> •      Good to see emphasis on frontline communities in the narrative.
> What needs to be developed further: what climate justice means from the
> point of view of frontline communities, needs to be more concrete.
> •      Need to maximize different arenas for climate justice advocacy –
> should not focus only on international processes, challenging for the
> frontline communities to engage there. Need to create/build on more local
> and national spaces.
> •      We should be very clear about what companies should be saying/doing
> on CC – too many false solutions, new technologies to keep on FF-based
> economy. We need to say this is not acceptable
> •      Need to support a people’s protocol on what system change and
> climate justice entails. Cf People Surge initiative?)
> •      Cso demanding system change are actually part of the system/doing
> Business as Usual = need to build our movement differently if we want it to
> be different and long term (?)
> •      Not just about climate change, would like to see economic and
> environmental justice in there more strongly.
> •      WE are the solutions – should be in there
> •      Our narrative should be let’s stop a deal that will burn the
> planet. That’s what is going to happen in Paris, will be worst that what we
> have seen in the past. We should be stopping it from happening.
> •      Importance of adaptation/resilience of frontline communities;
> •      Paris may begin like New York and may well end like Seattle – may
> have to shut it down
> •      Challenging to track nuances in the narrative because of linguistic
> problems
> •      Nothing in the narrative on financing despite its crucial role in
> climate change. Same with military/armies – looking into how to adapt. We
> need to confront them, they are the heart of the system we are trying to
> change
> •      Need to change and fight the international trade and investment
> legal systems (TTIP, WTO, etc)
>
