With the COP26 climate summit taking place in Glasgow, protesters are taking to the streets while delegates negotiate the ins and outs of the climate crisis.
Last-minute offers accepted by trade unions mean workers across refuse and the railways won’t strike as planned, but there will still be plenty action around the city. Here’s your guide to the campaigners making their voices heard at COP26.
They want: An international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse.
When? Definitely now. XR have indicated that plans are in motion for “targeted disruption” during COP26. On October 30 they’re hosting a Pilgrims’ Procession, “a people’s walk for the planet” through the streets of Glasgow, welcoming all those who have come to the city willing to demonstrate a demand for a fair deal come the end of COP26.
Campaign Against Climate Change
They want: Urgent and radical action to prevent the catastrophic destabilisation of global climate.
When? November 6 is Global Day for Climate Justice, when protests in Glasgow and the rest of the world will show how many people are pushing for politicians to make the changes needed to save the planet. These mass demonstrations and protests are set to take place throughout the UK.
