9News can confirm the man has sent a video to Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, demanding a climate emergency be declared.

The activists said they would "stay here as long as it takes. three or four days".

Mark Rylance shared a couple of words to the Extinction Rebellion protesters at St James Park. This is Lizzy Mansfield, one of the protesters.

"Clearly there is some frustration (for the police) that they probably have better things to be doing, and I agree, but the responsibility for that must lie with the Government".

Today they are camped out at Carlton Gardens.

Within the afternoon, Met Police started to determined barricaded bridges and ushered activists from Parliament Square to the "pedestrianised enviornment" of Trafalgar Square.

But around 10 p.m. officers with the Vancouver Police Department warned people it was time to leave.

"The climate crisis is not being taken seriously enough by politics, and also not by the companies".

Streets around Westminster in London were made a lot safer on Wednesday thanks to police, after they kettled a huge inflatable Octopus, that had joined the Extinction Rebellion (XR) protests, and marched it to Trafalgar Square.

Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the Committee of his concerns, ' he wrote. It was unclear if Graham's invitation was for Giuliani to appear in public or behind closed doors.

Protesters with Extinction Rebellion are also mounting a two-week campaign targeting downtown London, England.

The Courier-Mail reports the Extinction Rebellion activist donned a harness and lowered himself from the bridge early this morning.

Dutch police later said they had detained about 90 demonstrators who were blocking a busy Amsterdam street near the Rijksmuseum.

Before he was arrested on Tuesday, Extinction Rebellion spokesperson Jesse Noakes said the beginning of Friday's protest would coincide with morning peak hour and he expected commuters to be delayed.

The Paris event brought the area around Chatelet to a standstill.

The protesters are part of the larger Extinction Rebellion global movement.

The protesters belonged to a climate activism organization named Extinction Rebellion, according to CNBC.

The protests are part of an global two-week campaign coordinated by Extinction Rebellion, a campaign group that rose to prominence in April when it disrupted traffic in central London for 11 days.

Demonstrations occurred in 60 cities around the world this week, with thousands taking to the streets of New Delhi, Cape Town, Paris, Vienna, Madrid, and Buenos Aires.
