Activists are addressing world leaders in a Squid Game-themed protest at COP26.

Activists are addressing world leaders today, November 2, in a Squid Game-themed protest at COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow.

Some of the protesters wore costumes from the popular Korean Netflix series Squid Game, and other wore face masks of world leaders with their message being “stop playing games.”

Protests continue in Glasgow today, with this demonstration being the latest.

Many activists were spotted this morning close to the OVO Hydro where COP26 is being held, as they tried to get the attention of world leaders.

Some protesters were wearing suits with world leaders faces on, some wore pink overalls and masks as they were filmed playing games from the hit Netflix series.

Two were seen wearing masks of Boris Johnson and Joe Biden. Others were seen wearing the faces of Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping – who are not attending the event.

Protests have been organised across the city since the climate summit began on Sunday, October 31.

On Saturday,  Extinction Rebellion joined the Pilgrims Procession – a group of people who walked from different parts of the UK to Glasgow for the summit.

This was was dubbed the “opening ceremony” in a variety of non-violent direct actions during COP26.

Activist Greta Thunberg arrived on Saturday, and was yesterday filmed chanting “you can shove your climate crisis up your a**e” at a snap rally in the city.
