A few hundred young environmental activists began to gather, Friday, November 5, in Glasgow, to push governments to act, at the end of the first week of the COP26 climate conference.

Inspired by the young Swedish Greta Thunberg, millions of young people took to the streets across the world in 2019 to call on their leaders to act faster and stronger against global warming.

Interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, these weekly Friday demonstrations have been resuming for a few weeks, still led by their Scandinavian muse whose shock formulas are found on the banners.

# COP26 has been named the must excluding COP ever.

This is no longer a climate conference.

This is a Global North greenwash festival.

A two week celebration of business as usual and blah blah blah.
