The climate action group is part of a coalition of campaigning organisations and trade unions set to stage a protest in Glasgow on from 5pm at Buchanan Street steps, with a “die-in” protest in George Square planned from 6pm a day later as Trump prepares to leave the UK. 

Susanna Hotham, 26, Extinction Rebellion Glasgow activist said, “On World Environment Day we want to highlight the threat humanity faces if we don't act now to address the climate crisis. Scientists have warned us for decades, while politicians have failed us. The temperature and the seas are rising and this is set to accelerate in the coming years, and so we must rise up and act.

“Donald Trump is head of the world's most powerful state that could play a pivotal role in tackling the climate emergency the world faces.

“Instead, during Trump's presidency, the US has pulled out of the Paris climate agreement, which was already wholly inadequate, and has been a block to the kind of action we need and Trump himself is in denial about the looming ecological catastrophe threatening humanity. He needs to get out of his bunker and head out of the sand.

“Last month his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo argued that Arctic sea ice melting provided 'new opportunities for trade' on the day a UN report warned that one million species were at risk of extinction due to human action, including climate change.

“Trump's administration is driving humanity towards extinction.”
