I wrote this while at COP26 and am publishing them now with no edits after the fact. I hope it gives some insight, whether that’s emotional or educational. At the time of writing, I wasn’t planning for anyone to read it so it’s not packed full of facts or quotes as my blog posts would usually be. I write my journal as though I’m talking to someone. an unknown entity. I’ve never known who. This is educational more from a personal perspective rather than from an environmental one. It’s proof that climate activists are human beings with human emotions, which I feel is often forgotten about in the media.
“Today kay and I went into the city centre to meet up with an NI Journalist and friend to discuss how we would convey how COP is going to our local media and then we walked through an Extinction Rebellion protest. They were apparently doing a lock on at a bank but got arrested.
Kay and I also bought some Iron Bru to truly delve into Scottish culture while in Glasgow. Elijah, Kay, and I then joined a protest which met outside the museum where members of banks were having a meeting to put pressure on them to not fund fossil fuels. Banks have huge power in this economy and therefore a huge responsibility when it comes to the climate crisis. We must hold them accountable for their atrocious actions.”
