The protests by 'the Snowflakes' - a group associated with the eco-anarchists - blockaded the embassy, spray-painting messages and dousing the building in paint to symbolise indigenous people they say have been killed in Brazil.

Two activists from the group climbed onto a glass awning above the entrance of the embassy, and two others glued themselves to the windows.

They were joined by other activists taking part in a separate vigil for murdered environmental campaigners.
