Police begin to remove climate activists who glued themselves on top of a Dockland Light Railway train at Canary Wharf station in east London as part of the ongoing climate change protests in the capital on Wednesday April 17, 2019. Thousands have taken part in the movement, which calls for urgent action to fight humans' warming of the Earth's atmosphere.

A Transport for London worker appealed to the group to move their protest elsewhere, but the activists refused.

Extinction Rebellion is an worldwide protest group that uses non-violent civil disobedience to campaign on environmental issues.

The Extinction Rebellion group has ratcheted up its protests in recent weeks, blocking Marble Arch, Oxford Circus and Waterloo Bridge, smashing a door at the Shell building and shocking lawmakers with a semi-nude protest in parliament.

"We're working closely with the police to manage the impact of disruption to London's transport network", a Transport for London representative told The Guardian.

"I'm also a staunch supporter of the right to peaceful protest - which is a cornerstone of our democracy", Khan said.

The events in London are part of an global "climate rebellion" organised by Extinction Rebellion.

Police have arrested more than 300 people since Monday during protests by the group Extinction Rebellion. There are no further actions planned in Scotland this week but a number of protesters say they will travel to London to support activists there.

"We have no intention of leaving until the government listens to us", he said.

Activists had been told they must confine any demonstrations to the Marble Arch area, and police were taking action against protesters in other locations. Many bus routes have been disrupted, to the frustration of commuters.

Campaigners want governments to declare a climate and ecological emergency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2025, halt biodiversity loss and be led by new "citizens' assemblies on climate and ecological justice".
