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.
If you want to be part of the most important contingent at the COP26 protest, you can! We can help you with transport or accommodation. We’ll put you in touch with other socialist campaigners. Our members will support you to mobilise others and spread the word. And we’ll help you to be part of making history this November. If you’re interested, or if you just want to find out more, then you know what to do.
So fill in this form and we’ll be in touch!

Capitalism is in a historic crisis. We are entering an ‘age of disorder,’ marked by deepening polarization, instability, and inequality. Billionaires have increased their wealth by $5 trillion during the pandemic while workers lost $3.7 trillion. In the past year, millions have flooded onto the streets in movements against racism, police brutality, war, and state violence.
Mass movements and revolutions have broken out across the globe from Colombia to Myanmar. Working class youth have led the way in revolts against racism, sexism, and the climate crisis. Now more than ever it’s clear that the capitalist system offers no answers for working and oppressed people.
In over 30 countries across every continent, International Socialist Alternative is building a world party to tackle exploitation and oppression at its root – the capitalist system. Join us for a rally for a socialist world to hear from socialist activists from across the globe and learn more about getting involved with ISA!
Tune into the livestream on Facebook or YouTube to listen in English and Spanish. Join via zoom to hear interpretation into Deutsch, Nederlands, Français, עברית, Polish, Português, Svenska, Русский.
Sunday 25 July at 10am Vancouver // 12pm Mexico City // 1pm NYC // 14.00 Buenos Aires & São Paulo // 18.00 London // 19.00 Brussels & Joburg // 20.00 Moscow

Millions around the globe have been outraged at the revelations of abuse Britney Spears has faced as a result of her so-called conservatorship. This de-humanising coercion has seen Britney stripped of control over most aspects of her life – from work and money, to marriage, and even contraception and family planning.
So many of us feel solidarity with her plight because, while an extreme example, the abuse, manipulation and objectification she is experiencing are things all women and gender-non conforming people will be familiar with.
Why is this the case? How do we end this misogyny? Join Socialist Feminist Alternative to discuss
