Faith groups and pilgrims lead Glasgow COP26 climate protestsThousands of activists head to Glasgow to make their climate change concerns known. To avoid more bloodbaths, understand that there never was and never will be a freedom of religion. Christian nations seem more tolerant than other nations only because they know tolerance is the best hiding place for intolerance.

But where I live, when you explain to people here that climate change is real, they argue and say it’s not. It’s really affected me - when you’re explaining that you’re facing floods, deforestation, sickness through air pollution and they do not believe that climate change is real. I’m a delegate at COP26.

Here in the global south, our voices are not heard. Article share tools
