Thousands of protesters marched in the Scottish city of Glasgow on the second day of protests by environmentalists, who believe global warming issues were not addressed urgently at the United Nations Climate Change Conference.
Protesters – including students, activists, politicians and union members – marched downtown on November 6.
Some participants even had the inscription, “Capitalism is killing the planet.”
Organizers and police in Glasgow have said they expect 50,000 people to join the protests as part of global marches to demand immediate action for communities already affected by global warming.
Delegates from nearly 200 countries are attending the United Nations Climate Conference to analyze ways to implement the commitments made at the Paris Climate Conference in 2015, so that the average temperature remains at 1.5 to 2 degrees Celsius.
Among the agreements reached at this year’s conference is the reduction of greenhouse gas and methane emissions, as well as the non-financing of coal projects outside the participating countries.
Security increased around downtown Glasgow on November 6, as helicopters were also seen in the air during the marches.REL
