WITH COP26 just days away the threat of protests loom large with mass marches set to bring Glasgow to a standstill during the summit.

Activists will be aiming to heap pressure on world leaders and delegates to ensure they take the necessary action to properly tackle the climate crisis.

Extinction Rebellion have already warned ministers to be “very worried” by their campaign.

However, that has sparked a reaction from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon who urged climate protesters not to add to the “disruption and inconvenience” Glaswegians are already facing during COP26.

The main protests we know of so far, are as follows:

Saturday October 30 – 2pm - Pilgrims Procession - Extinction Rebellion Glasgow will join pilgrimage groups who have walked to the city to protest and will be marching through the city centre.

The March will start at McLennan Arch on Glasgow Green where XR Scotland’s ‘Blue Rebels’ will form a guard of honour for the pilgrims.

Monday November 1 – 3.30pm – Red Rebel Train – Extinction Rebellion Glasgow join members of the Red Rebel Brigade performance group. It is part of a national three-day train pilgrimage, starting in Cornwall on Saturday October 30 and finishing in Glasgow on Monday November 1.

Red Rebels will silently protest and perform at each station they stop at to share their message of Action.

Wednesday November 3 – Greenwash March – 12pm – A march through the city centre starting and finishing at Buchanan Gallery stepway after a 2-mile route. All protestors will aim to wear green during the procession to ‘call out big polluters and the institutions that bankroll them’.

Friday November 5 – Fridays for Future march – 11am – Protesters will be marching at 11 am from Kelvingrove park, starting from the Prince of Wales Bridge and march to George Square. A rally will then take place in George Square

Saturday November 6 – Global Day of Action (Justice March) - 12pm – Kelvingrove will be the main place where mass groups will gather. A number between 50,000-100,000 protesters are expected to attend as they march from Kelvingrove Park to Glasgow Green via the city centre.

However, there will be much more planned action on this day around the world and in Scotland. Check out our map above to find out where planned action will take place during COP26.

November 7-12 – Smaller scale protests – Protest in Glasgow include ‘Loss & Damage’, Africa Drillers = Northern Killer’s, and ‘Armadillo Die’ at the Necropolis.

At the heart of the planned action is the COP26 Coalition who help different groups come together to protest for climate change.

Mim Black, a spokesperson for the COP26 Coalition, told the Herald: “We are expecting about 50,000 to 100,000 people to be involved in a march through the city, then a big rally. There will probably be the same amount in London and more around the country we will see spread out smaller protests.”

“Without protests, the political will to act isn't there. Throughout history, any political gain or any human rights gain we've ever had, is because of protests.

“When decisions are left in the hands of powerful and rich, they often don't make decisions that are best for the people, and we want to put pressure on them to make the right decisions.”
