World-renowned Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg is also present.
Thunberg arrived at Glasgow Central Station by train on Saturday evening, departing from London Euston. Soon, a large entourage of police, photojournalists and activists surrounded the center.
After the train left, police and other activists surrounded her through the station. The Daily Mail describes its reception as “rock star reception».
But at the moment it is not clear if she was invited to attend the official part of the meeting.
– I don’t know, it’s not very clear. Not officially, she replied when asked by the BBC.
