On 6 November 2021, as world leaders meet in Glasgow for the COP26 Global Climate Summit, towns and cities across the world will take to the streets demanding global climate justice. This is the COP26 Coalition’s designated ‘Global Day of Action for Climate Justice'.
For the Glasgow march, you can view the route on Google Maps here.
Assemble: 11.30am Kelvingrove Park, Stewart Memorial Fountain
Rally: 3 - 4pm, Glasgow Green
You can find an overview of all the blocs and lead contacts here.
List of blocs:

There will be an ecosocialist bloc, probably as part of the Climate Justice bloc, but look out for our banner pictured at the end of this post.
There is a second major demonstration taking place on the same day in London, 11:30 AM – 5 PM, assemble outside the Bank of England, in the City of London. Again look out for our banner pictured at the end of this post. There is a Facebook events page here.
The decisions made at COP26 will shape how governments respond (or not) to the climate crisis. They will decide who is to be sacrificed, who will escape and who will make a profit. COP26 is happening at a crucial moment in history.
Across the world and across movements, we are seeing a new wave of resistance, global solidarity and grassroots organising. We have a unique opportunity to rewire our system as we recover from the pandemic. We can either intensify the crisis to the point of no return, or lay the foundations for a just world where everyone’s needs are met.

A public statement about COP26 will be released by the Ecosocialist Alliance on 24 October.
Come and join us at one of the events. Ecosocialism not Extinction!
