Protesters march in Brussels to pressure COP26 leaders over climate change

Several hundred protesters marched through Brussels towards the European Parliament on Sunday, October 31, calling for decisive action on climate change from world leaders as they prepare to gather in Scotland for the COP26.

Heads of government from the Group of 20 (G20) nations are flying to Glasgow from a summit in Rome, where they agreed "meaningful and effective" action to limit global warming.

However, no concrete commitments were made, to the dismay of hundreds of protesters in Brussels.

Along with action to limit the emission of greenhouse gases, leaders must also discuss commitments by rich countries to help finance the transition away from fossil fuels in poorer ones.

World leaders will kickstart COP26 on Monday, November 1, with two days of speeches that could include some new emissions-cutting pledges, before technical negotiators lock horns over the rules of the 2015 Paris climate accord.
