Dozens of Donald Trump protesters are due to take Glasgow's streets today to demonstrate over his UK visit.

Climate protest group Extinction Rebellion are planning two separate events in Glasgow to demonstrate against President Trump’s visit and his administrations’ stance on climate change.

Extinction Rebellion have planned their first event for Tuesday (today) at 5pm on steps outside Buchanan Galleries, staging a rally in conjunction with various campaign groups and Trade Unions.

In 2017, President Trump declared the US would abandon the landmark Paris climate change agreement, pledging emissions cuts.

With the UK being one of the first countries to declare a ‘climate emergency’, 250 academics have written an open letter to Theresa May urging her to ‘robustly challenge’ President Trump on climate change.  

The demo has been publicly supported by Glasgow Stop the War, the People’s Assembly Scotland and firefighters’ FBU union.

On Wednesday, June 5, Extinction Rebellion Glasgow have planned a ‘Die In’ at George Square. Protesters are encouraged to dress in blue colours to raise awareness of the rising sea levels and risk of flooding caused by climate change.

On Sunday, protesters also gathered on Trump’s Turnberry golf course with banners and signs reading ‘GET OUT YOUR BUNKER’ for his arrival.

Extinction Rebellion have said: “Ignoring scientific facts, Trump is one of the biggest climate change deniers in our world. He ‘doesn’t believe in it’ and keeps administering policies that pursue pro-fossil fuel agendas”.

“We object to his racist, misogynistic and far-right policies. We stand in solidarity with everyone resisting Trump in the US and elsewhere.
