PARIS (AP) รข€" Thousands of people have joined a march and rally held in Paris as part of an international mobilization to show popular support for urgent measures to combat climate change.

Crowds overflowed a plaza in front of City Hall before marching east to the Place de la Republique on Saturday. They carried with them an urgent message that it's up to the public to put global warming at the top of the political agenda.

The front-page of France's daily Libera tion newspaper featured a call from 700 French scientists for politicians to take action because "solutions are available."

Activists encouraged "Rise for Climate" protests around the world before a climate summit opens next week in San Francisco. California's governor proposed the event after President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement.
