Threatening climate change group Extinction Rebellion announces plans to close Brisbane with its biggest protest ever to cause thousands of people misery on a public holiday
- Extinction Rebellion has announced more protests in Brisbane on 7 October
- Commuters will be hampered by civil disobedience by climate activists
- Protests are scheduled in many cities around the world on the same date
- The group's last protest ended in 72 arrests
Activist group Extinction Rebellion has announced plans to close Brisbane CBD on the official holiday of Queen Anniversary with a huge protest.
The climate change group published plans for the October 7 rally and committed an act of & # 39; non-violent civil disobedience & # 39; to the Brisbane commuters.
The protest is not just planned in Brisbane, with the International Extinction Rebellion community organizing events in different cities around the world on the same date.
The group expects thousands of activists to attend the meeting, while the organization organizes workshops to train demonstrators on how to hold their demonstrations, and how to deal with police and media.
Climate action group Extinction Rebellion has already planned another protest in Brisbane (see a previous protest in Brisbane from the group)
They have a & # 39; non-violent civil disobedience & # 39; planned to inconvenience the Brisbane commuters
& # 39; We now know with certainty that not enforcing rapid and radical action against the climate crisis will lead to the deaths of billions of people and countless numbers of other species on this planet, & # 39; event message is reading.
& # 39; With this in mind, the International Extinction Rebellion community has chosen October 7 to bring massive non-violent civil disobedience to cities around the world. & # 39;
& # 39; XR SEQ and surrounding XR groups expect thousands of rebels to descend to the capital of Queensland from October 7.
& # 39; We acknowledge that this action and the uprising will take place on the stolen lands of the Jagera and Turrbal peoples of Meanjin and environs (now known as Brisbane).
& # 39; First Nations people have been fighting for 231 years to protect land, water, culture and life.
& # 39; On August 6, we gave an example of what we can do when we come together.
& # 39; It is now time to do something bigger. & # 39;

The planned protest comes after an Extinction Rebellion member abseiled Monday at William Jolly Bridge in Brisbane CBD, stopping peak hour traffic for more than an hour.
Extinction Rebellion & # 39; s latest protest in Brisbane on August 6 ended with 72 activists being arrested, with indictments such as public nuisance, disobedient legal clues and obstructing police.
The police will again be strongly present for the demonstration.
