A GROUP of climate protesters have launched action in Glasgow today - in the form of a 'Squid Game' themed display.

Mulitple activists were seen this morning near the OVO Hydro where COP26 is being held, as they attempted to capture the attention of world leaders.

Some were dressed in suits with world leaders' faces on them, with others in pink overalls and masks as they were filmed playing childrens' games from the popular Netflix series.

Their message to world leaders was to 'stop playing games', and activists dressed up to immitate some of the most recognisable names at COP26.

Two activists were caught wearing masks of Boris Johnson and Joe Biden. Whilst others had the faces of Russian leader Vladimir Putin, and Chinese President Xi Jinping who are not attending the climate talks.

NBC Reporter Denise Chow caught footage of the display.

More action is planned in the coming days which will fill Glasgow streets with people demanding climate action.

So, when and where are some of the protests happening? We have created a map which shows planned action all across Scotland during the two-week talks.

Planned protests have already been seen across the city since the start of the climate summit.

On Saturday Extinction Rebellion joined up with the Pilgrims Procession - a group of people who walked from various parts of the UK to Glasgow for the talks. It was considered the “opening ceremony” in a programme of non-violent direct actions during COP26.

Greta Thunberg also arrived on Saturday, and she was yesterday filmed chanting "you can shove your climate crisis up your a**e" at a snap rally in Glasgow. 

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

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.

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, and the first of their exploits have already begun.

However, that 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 the climate summit.
