Climate 'apocalypse': Extinction Rebellion launches fortnight of global protests

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.

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.
