Protesters in Glasgow Condemn Corporate ‘Greenwashing’

As the COP26 climate summit shifted its focus to funding, protesters demanded greater accountability from corporations and called out “greenwashing.”

“What do we want?” “Climate justice.” “When do we want it?” “Now.” “Are we going to fight for it?” “I did the travel from Reunion Island because I think it’s important that the voice of the youth of Reunion Island has to be heard by the politicians because there is a big emergency on our islands for their impact by climate change. And today I’m here with XR to protest about that protest, about greenwashing. That is actually a big problem on the COP26. We want real actions.” “Who are you going to call?” “Greenwashbusters.” “Who are you going to call?” “Greenwashbusters.” “We’re a group of activists from Bristol, and we call ourselves the Greenwashbusters. We’re up here at COP26 because we know that there’s governments and companies that profess to be, you know, doing things to save the planet when actually they’re doing exactly the opposite, you know, funding deforestation and extraction of fossil fuels. And it’s the hypocrisy that we are here to call out.”
