Climate Protests Continue Amid Arrests
More disruptions are expected.
We can expect another day of climate demonstrations on Day Two of Extinction Rebellion's International Rebellion Week after mass arrests during protests in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane yesterday.
Their goal is to cause disruptions to make us think about their demands which include the Government committing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.
There were 10 people arrested for during a swarm in Melbourne's CBD during yesterday afternoon's peak hour which cause widespread traffic dramas. Another protest is set to shut down another intersection this morning.
Thirty-eight demonstrators were arrested in Sydney, with protesters to gather at Hyde Park at 9am before a rally in Sydney Square. They're planning to cause a scene through a Flash Mob on Sydney trains tomorrow morning.
In Brisbane, six people arrested during an all day demonstration yesterday with more disruptions expected today.
