    BONUS: Can climate protests change Government policy?

    As a reporter at the Scottish Parliament, Phil Sim has seen his fair share of protests. From the big marches against Donald Trump and Brexit, to smaller ones over local issues like factory closures and rail services. He’s heard all manner of protests songs, witnessed MSPs marching in pyjamas, or in one case, dressed up as a fox, and has seen more ‘down with this sort of thing’ placards than you could shake a stick at. But does any of it have a tangible impact on our politics?

    In this special episode of Podlitical, Phil examines two of the biggest protests of the day – The School Strikers and Extinction Rebellion, to find if protest can really succeed in changing the course of a government.
