HUNDREDS of school pupils have swarmed George Square in Glasgow in protest against climate change for a second time.

The disruption is set to take place at lunchtimes on certain dates as campaigners share their “fear, grief and determination” in the midst of what they are calling “climate crisis, species extinction and global injustice.”

Crowds of young people are waving placards outside the City Chambers.

Organised by Extinction Rebellion, those taking part in the action are being encouraged to take part in a “sit-down/die-in protest” to block the City Chambers’ main entrance, or all entrances if possible

The group is also encouraging protesters to swarming in and around the City Centre to block roads.

As we reported earlier this month, environmental protestors are vowing a daily campaign of ‘civil disobedience’ outside the City Chambers until politicians and officials declare a ‘climate emergency’.

Extinction Rebellion, which previously stormed the debating chamber at the Scottish Parliament, said it would stage sit-ins outside Glasgow City Council's headquarters to highlight the threat posed by global warming.

The protests come as hundreds march through Glasgow on March 2 today in a so-called ‘Blue Wave’ - including people dressed as sea creatures - demanding binding policies to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2025.

Extinction Rebellion, which appears to be growing in number with editions appearing up and down the country, formed around the UK last year to campaign for action on the environment. It also supports school climate strikes.
