For these four NGOS, it is "a mobilization of unprecedented magnitude, in a record time, which demonstrates the evolution of the awareness of citizens, the thirst for justice and the commitment to concrete action on the climate. And it's only the beginning".

The executive director of Greenpeace added that "a million people, and certainly more accountable to the State for its climate inaction, it is a historical fact". For Jean-François Julliard, "Emmanuel Macron can no longer simply grandstanding on climate". For its part, Cecile Duflot, president of Oxfam France, believes that the transaction "is already a unique event". "None of us expected such a success and so quickly," admitted the director of Oxfam France to the AFP.

the former minister of energy transition, Nicolas Hulot is also pleased to learn of this citizen mobilization called a "signal fort that begs to be materialized".

According to the NGOS, the site received Tuesday and Wednesday 1.25 million unique visits, with peaks of 100.000 per hour. The video accompanying it, which includes Juliette Binoche, Cyril Dion, Abd al-Malik, Elie Semoun, or even of each other as McFly and Carlito, has registered millions of views on Facebook.

The actions against the States multiply

The four associations have sent on Monday a prior request to the government, accused of "lack fault" by its "action failed" to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. The associations are working on this complaint for a long time. They decided to launch the device in the aftermath of a climate change conference of the UN, the COP24, considered a disappointment. The defendant has two months to respond, the NGO planning then a legal remedy before the administrative tribunal of Paris, a first in the French scale.

In the world and in Europe, similar actions have already been launched. Thus, the netherlands were the first country in the world to ask the first milestone of this climate justice. In 2015, the NGO Urgenda and 886 citizens have won their lawsuit against the government. The State has been sentenced to immediately take more stringent measures to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. Then this mode of action has spread to other countries. Thus, "in Colombia, 25 young people have been recognized by the supreme Court the need to take action against deforestation and for the protection of the climate. In Pakistan, a son of farmers did recognize the right to life and access to food in the face of climate change," says Greenpeace. The United States also, the supreme Court ruled in late July on the admissibility of a complaint filed by 21 young people aged 11 to 22 years of age, who accuse the governments of the us successive to have put in danger the ecosystem of future generations through their actions.

last August, the Court of justice of the european Union has accepted the assignment to "climate inaction" of the ten families of european, kenyan and fijian. The complainants consider that the eu policies do not protect enough of climate change. According to the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, more than 900 complaints and appeals related to the protection of the planet have been launched in the world over the past ten years. Climate justice is the new weapon of the citizens to encourage States and companies to act.
