COP26: Suffragettes and Squid Game-inspired activists protest on summit's second day

Modern day suffragettes, Squid Game-inspired activists and miniature Greta Thunbergs were among those campaigning for climate action during the second day of the COP26 summit in Glasgow.

On Tuesday, over 100 world leaders at the landmark conference pledged to end deforestation by 2030.

Protesters in the city urged the politicians to back their words with swift actions.

Climate activists from the Glasgow Actions Team, wearing Squid Game costumes and masks of world leaders, played tug of war and hopscotch during a demonstration at the Clyde Arc Bridge.

Politicians Joe Biden, Boris Johnson and Narendra Modi were among those mimicked in front of a sign written "stop playing climate games".

Outside the offices of JP Morgan on Waterloo Street, young protesters echoed Greta Thunberg's new "blah, blah, blah" slogan.

They joined 'the Red Rebel Brigade' and other demonstrators in calling out the bank's continued profits from investment in fossil fuel projects.

Extinction Rebellion and climate activists dressed as suffragettes also joined in.

On Tuesday evening, ITV News Scotland Correspondent Peter Smith reported that Squinty bridge, which is located near the conference and spans the River Clyde, had been closed off by police.

Pictures showed officers circling a protest group outside the India Quay restaurant, situated just 500 yards from the COP26 venues.
