Green activists occupied George Square to spread awareness of the climate crisis and the government’s lacklustre response. Over a hundred attendees turned out at the event on Friday, which was sure to draw Glasgow’s attention.
There were simultaneous protests in Oxford and Central London.
When asked what he would say to readers interested in making a difference, Oxford based eco-activist, Harry stated: “I think grassroots environmental groups are currently experiencing unprecedented growth in number, not just XR and the Youth Strikes, but other community and student groups.
“There is so much to gain from reaching out and taking part in eco action. And if there isn’t something around, make it, because that can be even more rewarding.”
More action is due in the coming days including plans to disrupt London Fashion Week in an attack against the trend of damaging and excessive consumption.
Marches are also occurring in Bristol, Cardiff and Colchester, with the increased frequency of organised protests set to build momentum for the long-planned Rebellion Week, comprised of multiple protests occurring on a global scale, which is set for April 15th.
