Environmental protesters have mobilized to take over five of London's most iconic locations, bringing streets to a standstill, with the aim of forcing the United Kingdom government to take serious action on the "global climate emergency".

A protester for Extinction Rebellion has defended the impending Climate Change protests which are set to cause extreme travel disruption in London over the coming days.

Environmental protesters have blocked Waterloo Bridge in London as they try to bring the city to a standstill.

Police have arrested more than 100 environmental protesters overnight as the climate demonstrations that brought chaos to central London enters its second day.

Savannah, a protester for Extinction Rebellion, defended the protests and said the group want to start important conversations. "You can't just put a load of trees on Waterloo Bridge!"

Williams, who took part in Monday's protest, said at a meditation the night before that humans had declared war on nature. "We have to go on to a war footing".




He said: "People are frustrated and angry but if we don't stop climate change there will be a complete breakdown of society".

The group wrote to the Theresa May on Monday outlining their demands and asking for talks. They plan to engage in acts of non-violent civil disobedience against governments in capital cities around the world.

The group tweeted: "Day 1 of #InternationalRebellion saw actions in 33 countries, 52 willing arrests in London occupations of #MarbleArch #OxfordCircus #ParliamentSquare #WaterlooBridge #PicadillyCircus, overnight some occupations evicted".

But later on Monday the Met issued an order under section 14 of the Public Order Act, which allows conditions to be imposed on public processions and assemblies.

Scotland Yard said they have "appropriate policing plans" in place for the demonstrations and that officers will be used from across the force "to support the public order operation during the coming weeks". "Our objective is to create a political crisis, if that means people being arrested and going to jail then so be it".
