The Swedish environmental activist will lead hundreds of furious activists from Kelvingrove Park to the city centre to protest ‘greenwashing’. So-called ‘greenwashing’ is a form of marketing spin in which big businesses attempt to persuade the public that their products, aims and policies are environmentally friendly – a dishonesty which activists say is destroying the planet.

This is a Global North greenwash festival, it is a two-week celebration of business as usual and blah blah blah.”
