SWAN Members Present All Over The UK in Climate Protests

Friday’s global gatherings appear to have amounted to the largest movement in history of people protesting about a single issue. Millions of people, in thousands of protests, across hundreds of countries, turned out to shout about the destruction of our living world and it’s connections to migration, poverty, war and capitalism.

Aberdeen and Glasgow saw large marches with a strong Swan presence…

The UCU branch present at Liverpool Hope Uni organised their own solidarity event that saw hundreds of staff walk out of work to protest lack of action on the climate crisis.

In Wigan, steering committee member Malcolm spoke at a public event, demanding system change – not climate change, on behalf of SWAN.

SWAN members were also present in London and Leciestershire. If you have an event report that you would like to share, contact us at swansocialwork@gmail.com.
