Late last night, news reports featured the terrible news of more than 100 people killed in a series of coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across Paris. We stand in solidarity with all of our friends and colleagues, and with all of the people of France.
So far, it appears all Pathway to Paris collaborators and friends are safe and accounted for. US CAN informs us that all friends and colleagues in Paris are safe and accounted for.
The word from a senior French diplomatic source is that the COP21 will go ahead as scheduled, with enhanced security measures.
We will keep everyone informed as we learn more about how changes in security will affect events and freedom of movement during the COP21.
I would like to take this opportunity to pass along well wishes to the Pathway to Paris team, and to all who are working to make this process a success that will leave us a safer, more sustainable, democratic, and just future. Many supporters and colleagues have been sending well wishes, thoughts and prayers, and we share these with everyone in Paris
