COP26 protest

COP26 protest – join the international ‘red bloc’

Demand system change!

Our planet is burning. Wild fires, floods, melting ice caps, critical tipping points – we are running out of time. In November, the leaders of the world’s rich and powerful meet in Glasgow at the COP26 climate summit. From these leaders we can expect lots of grand words and few grand plans.

That’s because the vested interests of the huge monopolies which dominate global capitalism, and therefore billions of lives, will be all too well represented inside Glasgow’s SEC centre. But outside those walls, we have an opportunity to raise our voices for the fundamental change that’s needed. So International Socialist Alternative is mobilising people from across Scotland, England, Wales, Europe and the world to join the mass COP26 protest.

By creating the largest possible socialist bloc on the march, we’ll be making a powerful statement of intent. We’ll be saying that working-class and young people will not accept a system that prioritises profit over planet every time. Instead, we will build a huge movement for system change – for socialist change.

Socialist change means taking the big polluters out of private hands, with no shareholder compensation except for those with proven need. It means democratically planning the economy across borders. This would lay the basis for a rapid and just transition away from fossil fuels. It would secure a bright future for our world.
