Thousands of people have gathered in Glasgow to protest and push the COP26 UN climate conference to take stronger action in the climate. 

The gathered crowd mostly consists of students and climate change activists.

Among the banners that were raised was one that said “Capitalism in killing the planet.”

The protest took place just near the COP26 meeting itself which started on Monday and will last one more week.

Among the issues that were already discussed the meeting was the fact that global warming is seriously affecting humanity as among all other it is threatening food security.

Not only representatives from countries attended the meeting as actors like Idris Elba and full on company like Unilever PepsiCo and Google also attended the summit
