Bangalore, Dec 8 (UNI) More than 1000 volunteers of Greenpeace descended on M Chinnaswamy stadium today to spread the message of 'climatic change has no boundary' on the Global Day of Action Against Climate Change.

Dressed in yellow, the volunteers cheered everytime the Indian batsmen hit a boundary and voiced their message in the cricket ground, urging the world to take urgent action on climate change.

They called on the cricket lovers to act against global warming.

The whole of A Stand was painted yellow with the volunteers dressed from top to bottom in yellow. Some fun events followed with the volunteers starting the Mexican wave and the big crowd which made it to the stadium soon after learning that India were batting first.

The volunteers held up large number of placards with climate messages. They also made human art formations, wore fun masks, a penguin volunteer spoke to spectators and many painted their bodies with messages and much more.

''We want Bangalore to join us on this day to have fun and call on world leaders to save us from the catastrophe. Whether you are enjoying the match here, or watching TV at home, should do their bit for the climate,'' one volunteer said.
