The group took to the streets in the British capital on Monday morning as part of a fresh "international rebellion".

Mike Gumn, 33, a National Health Service manager with two children, said he used a day of annual leave so he could attend the demonstration.

London police have made almost 500 arrests as climate-change protesters, labelled "uncooperative crusties" by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, continue two weeks of civil disobedience to push for more to be done to protect the environment.

Zuhura Plummer, a 36-year-old charity worker from Oxford who is taking part, said: "While we squabble over Brexit, the planet is burning".

By midday, the protest had swelled to 4,000 people, a policeman said, and a second main roundabout was also blocked by activists sitting in the middle of the road.

A handful of protesters from Extinction Rebellion Québec, an environmental activist group, started climbing the bridge's structure early Tuesday morning, forcing provincial police to close all lanes of traffic.

As protests got under way in the capital, police were seen cutting two Extinction Rebellion protesters out of a vehicle blocking off Victoria Embankment.

"I don't know that shutting the city down necessarily wins you many friends", Victoria premier Daniel Andrews said.

Extinction Rebellion is calling on the Government to declare a climate and ecological emergency, to act immediately to halt wildlife loss and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.

"We need a level of cooperation ... so we can safely deliver their right to protest", Commander Hansen said. Once back on solid ground, he was seen being taken into police custody, according to footage shared on Twitter by a Brisbane Times reporter.

Police said 152 arrests had been made on Tuesday, taking the total number over the two days to 471 as some protesters lay down in the road outside parliament whilst others dressed in colourful costumes or brought tree saplings to give to lawmakers.

At least nine people have been arrested, they said.

In a series of protests also including Australian cities of Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, protestors are demanding much more urgent action against climate change.

Meanwhile, Extinction Rebellion ringleader Eric "Serge" Herbert avoided a conviction in courts after allegedly being caught protesting in Brisbane's CBD yesterday, breaching his bail conditions.

Police moved in to arrest more than a dozen protesters in both Halifax and Toronto after just a few hours, while police in Edmonton negotiated an end to a protest there without arrests, within hours of the protest beginning.

"The government and big business needs to tell the truth - there is a climate emergency and ecological disaster".
