The roads behind Downing Street were blocked throughout the day by protesters, some of whom had erected tents in the street and were sitting down and singing songs together.

They also locked themselves to a mock trident missile in front of the Ministry of Defence on Embankment.

"Climate not Trident" read a banner deployed next to the fake missile.

On October 7, the protest group exerted its efforts across Canada by having members in a number of cities block bridges to raise awareness about their cause.

Separately, large groups of activists blocked Lambeth Bridge and Parliament Street, both locations close to the Houses of Parliament.

Dozens of people have been arrested at climate change rallies on the east coast of Australia.

He dismissed the idea of declaring a "climate emergency", saying that the constitution does not provide for such a thing and it does not translate into "concrete action". "We want to use any way we can to make people and governments sit up and notice".

Boris Johnson on Monday night condemned the demonstrators, labelling them "uncooperatvie crusties" who were holding up traffic. So far, 250 have been convicted.

Police also confiscated six vehicles and arrested nine people during the early clampdown.

But he said the police had taken away items which the protesters had taken to the campaign, including gazebos, oat milk and art equipment, although they have since been replaced with donations from other groups.

The demonstration has been peaceful, although singing activists linked arms and lay on the ground to hinder police efforts to remove them from the road.

Climate change activists Extinction Rebellion have organized a series of protests to block busy bridges to traffic across Canada.

"Politicians and media have acknowledged the crisis, but they are not telling the truth about the enormity of the climate emergency".

Victoria police said on Twitter that they are aware of the protest plans.

The group tweeted Tuesday: "We're shutting down cities - not because it's fun (though it can be), but because it's our last option for stopping this toxic system in its tracks".

The demonstration on Monday was a joint initiative that took place in multiple countries.

As of 6pm all the "rebels" blocking traffic had been removed, Extinction Rebellion said in a statement. It says protests are planned in 60 cities worldwide.

Extinction Rebellion Canada is known for its mass protests and commitment to averting catastrophic climate change.
