  • Demonstrators during a Extinction Rebellion protest in Parliament Square in London

A group of demonstrators also targeted the headquarters for Shell on Monday, spraying phrases such as "Shell knows" and "climate criminals" onto the front of the building. So far the police appear to be tolerating it, but the organisers say this is far from a one-day event.

Extinction Rebellion (XR), an environmentalist group responsible for causing scenes in the House of Commons earlier this month when semi-naked activists stripped off in Parliament as MPs tried to debate Brexit, claim they intend to occupy the roads for at least 72 hours. Extinction Rebellion have organised a nationwide week of action, they are calling for a full-scale Rebellion to demand decisive action from governments on climate change and ecological collapse.

These are central London landmarks protesters are targeting as part of efforts to demand the Government declares a climate emergency.

The activists are also planning road blocks at Marble Arch, Oxford...

'Today's protest by Extinction Rebellion has now concluded.

The scientist said the group was calling on the United Kingdom government to fulfil three demands: to better inform the public about climate change, to make the country carbon neutral by 2025 and to create a citizens assembly model on environmental issues.

"They will be blocking five of the city's busiest and most iconic locations in a non-violent, peaceful act of rebellion where they invite people to join them for several days of creative, artist-led resistance". They have left us with no other option.

"We've got 12 years to act before there is irreversible damage to the environment and we start to see catastrophic changes".

Activists gathered at Hyde Park yesterday and were encouraged to camp there overnight before a march towards Piccadilly Circus today.

The Royal Parks said Extinction Rebellion had not asked for permission to begin their protests in Hyde Park and repeated camping is not allowed.
