Climate Activists Confront World Leaders At Lavish COP26 Dinner

Chanting “shame on you,” activists rallied amid a heavy police presence Monday evening outside a swanky reception for world leaders and others attending the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland to protest their inadequate response to the planetary emergency.

Members of Britain’s royal family and corporate executives joined heads of state and other leaders at the exclusive dinner event, which was hosted by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

“How dare these world leaders have a fancy dinner on the first night of COP26, as if they have something to be proud of,” said Cat Scothorne of the group Glasgow Calls Out Polluters, according to STV News.
