Protesters also blocked roads across Australia and New Zealand, with police in Sydney arresting at least 30 people . Police also forcibly removed and arrested about 50 XR protesters blocking city roads in Amsterdam after they ignored orders to move to a nearby square.

Extinction Rebellion demonstrations are taking place in more than 60 cities around the world in response to what participants say is inadequate action on the ecological crisis the claims is facing our planet.

They say while their actions are peaceful, they're aiming to disrupt 'business as usual' and are prepared to be arrested in order to send a message.

They're also having a lot of fun doing it.

As well as using covert phone apps such as Signal and WhatsApp to plan their targets, others are taking to closed Facebook groups where they taunt ordinary Aussies.

'It was great fun and  a huge hit on social media already,' one protester wrote of a disruptive march. 'Just what the doctor ordered ... joy and laughter.'

Others pose for photos happily outside police stations where they wait for their 'hero' mates who have been arrested to be bailed.

Nearly 60 protesters were arrested on Tuesday in Melbourne when they blocked the intersection of Spring and Collins streets.

Another 30 were arrested on Wednesday.

Extinction Rebellion began in April 2018 when a small group of British activists met in Bristol to discuss how to achieve what one early member called 'radical social change'.

They began by occupying Greenpeace's offices in London before a protest at London's Parliament Square.

In the UK, the movement wants the government to 'tell the truth' and declare a climate and ecological emergency; reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025 and stop biodiversity loss.

In Australia, protesters patted themselves on the back for allowing an ambulance to cross their lines.

  Climate activists prepare to shut down William Jolly Bridge On the final day of International Rebellion Week, protesters are preparing to shut down a key Brisbane bridge.More than 1500 people indicated on social media that they planned to join the climate activists on the bridge and peacefully occupy it from 10am, blocking the key bridge entirely until 6pm.

While it was impossible to determine exactly how many people protested worldwide, a preliminary analysis by By late morning, protesters across the Eastern Seaboard were streaming out of schools and office buildings “ They ’ re going to call ‘BS,’” Ms. Fisher, the sociologist, said of the protesters .

It isn't only climate change Greta Thunberg is angry about. She was determined to change that and, starting with her family, she began her campaign to get the world to take action on climate change .

But a woman broke down in tears this week as rowdy climate change protesters barred her from reaching the home of her mum who died on Sunday.

'I just want to get to the home so I can start organising all the clean-up, medicines and drugs that are there from the palliative care and the hospital bed that mum died in, and I’m sitting here,' she told A Current Affair. 'D**kheads, I don’t even know what they’re on about, what’s it for?'

The program also interviewed an elderly man who had been prevented from getting to hospital.

'What a joke, won’t let people go around their own business,' he said. 'I’ve got an appointment for cancer at St Vincents, I’ve got to walk and I’m not allowed to go up there. They won’t let me go. What a joke.'

The buses were filled with healthcare workers on their way to work including a surgeon who was expected to be in the operating room for surgery at 9.30am.

Brisbane climate protestors a ‘danger to themselves and others’

  Brisbane climate protestors a ‘danger to themselves and others’ The Advertiser’s Caleb Bond has echoed calls for climate change protestors causing commotion in Brisbane to be stripped of their welfare, saying if they are “being funded by the taxpayer”, their first priority “is to go and get a job”. Extinction Rebellion activists in Brisbane have caused major delays and disruption by gluing themselves to roads and chaining themselves to fencing, actions that Mr Bond said are causing "danger to themselves” and “danger to other people”.“It is not okay behaviour,” he said. “Anything we can do as a society and as a government to stop them from doing it, we should be exercising.

Sometimes they damage private property. But they tend to focus their aggression on symbols of the state, such as government buildings, police vehicles and recently the subway system, which has begun to close stations in neighborhoods where protests are taking place.

Fired-up Samantha Armytage blasts climate change protesters for creating traffic chaos in a bid to spread their message. 'We saw protesters cause major problems across the country yesterday. How bad is it going to get today?' she asked. Ms Robinson said their was a 'lots of actions' planned

Behind the scenes, protesters stated if people couldn't get into a hospital because of them, it was their own fault.

'If people tell you that protestors blocked access to hospitals or the like please remind them that climate change deniers are the ones who are responsible,' an activist wrote.

'If deniers accepted science facts and evidence then these protests would never have happened and there would be no disruption.

'They are the ones responsible, they need to be adults and accept the blame.'

Others tee-off at television host Kerri-Anne Kennerley, who slammed climate change protesters this week, suggesting motorists should 'use them as a speed bump'.

Extinction Rebellion spokesman James Norman publicly condemned Kennerley’s comments, reminding everyone it was a 'peaceful, non-violent organisation'.

Yet many comments online, suggest otherwise.

'Kerri Ann is really Alan Jones in drag,' one wrote.

'Ok who can print life sized photos of Kerry Anne to be super glued to the road!' another states.

'And left there to be run over,' comes the response.

Troublemakers from across the Tasman have taken to the sites to ask for advice for when they are arrested.

Extinction Rebellion activists form logo on sand at Bondi Beach

  Extinction Rebellion activists form logo on sand at Bondi Beach Climate activists have formed the shape of an hour glass on the sand at Bondi Beach this morning. The symbol, formed collectively by dozens of protesters, is the Extinction Rebellion logo. © 9News Protesters sit in the shape of an hour glass, the Extinction Rebellion logo, on Bondi Beach. The action comes after a week of protests in capital cities across the country and the world.Protesters marched with flags and signs, chained themselves to cars, boats and train tracks, blocked roads, suspended themselves from bridges, and thrust their heads in the sand at Manly Beach.

One main strategy used by climate change deniers is to argue that there is no trend in warming, or that the Climate scientists used to believe that was the case. Even then, they knew the world as a whole was warming 'The blob': how marine heatwaves are causing unprecedented climate chaos .

Many of them served as army generals and navy admirals, defending Russian borders in different wars and battles. Among the most famous ones were Field Marshall James Bruce, Field Marshall Barclay de Tolly and Admiral Thomas Mackenzie, all of them of Scottish origin.

Explanation cards advising law breakers on their rights have also been posted.

'Remain calm,' they advise.  'You do not have to consent to searches. If forced, do not resist.'

Others complain about being detained by police.

'My friend lily was held in custody for 26 hours. She was refusing to sign bail conditions which would have banned her from associating with rebels and going to protests,' one moaned. 'I think we should refuse to sign such draconian bail conditions.'

While some offer new ways to annoy the public, including hunger strikes, one activist ponders why ordinary Australians might be bothered by their protests.

'One thing that we are criticised for is not having a viable solution to offer to combat global warming whilst still serving the needs of the growing population,' he wrote.

Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton, blasted Extinction Rebellion activists for 'thumbing their nose at taxpayers'.

He called for Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, to hit the protesters with the 'full force of the law'.

'These people are anarchists and fringe-dwellers and they should be feeling the full force of the law instead of the wet lettuce that’s being thrown at them by Annastacia Palaszczuk at the moment,' he told Sydney radio.

Dutton blames soft laws for Qld protests .
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton says "slap on the wrist" penalties for Queensland protesters don't reflect community standards and won't stop civil actions.Mr Dutton has labelled current penalties weak and called on the state government to speedily pass laws increasing minimum sentences.
