Police made 35 arrests, including serial protester Eric Herbert, who was taken into custody for the eighth time.

Police equipped with power tools freed them but not before they caused mass disruption to commuter traffic.

Forty one people were arrested in the city, bringing the total of demonstrators taken into custody this week in Melbourne to 110.

A climate change activist, identified as British para-athlete James Brown, climbed on top of a plane on the runway of London's City Airport yesterday, reports CNN.

Climate activists use bikes to block morning trafficOne commuter said the ExtinctionRebellion traffic block on Hoddle St was frustrating, even though he supported climate action. 'Does it have to be at peak hour?' he asked. 'It makes me a little against the cause in a way.' 'Preventing human extinction is important, but not important enough to inconvenience me in the slightest' You can be against Extinction Rebellion actions but still support action on climate change. I think ER are ok with that. Don’t conflate anti ER with anti action on climate change. And the world was eternally grateful, as extinction was saved due to the galant efforts of thirty priveliged unemployed white people, stopping traffic with bicycles! How did we not think of this solution before
