The group said their plan was to drive to Parliament House before they & # 39; die in & # 39; on King George Square.

Protesters were seen lying on the floor and pretended to be dead next to signs with the text: & # 39; climate denial is mass murder & # 39; and & # 39; there is no future on a dead planet & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Cycling also circumvents traffic stops that will occur more frequently because our politicians do not take the necessary action against climate change, & # 39; said the group in a statement.

Among the demonstrators, the Greens was candidate for mayor Kath Angus, Brisbane.

& # 39; I am really passionate about active transport. I am a cyclist and I have had many critical incidents, so I think it is very important that we draw attention to the lack of safety in the city, & she told the Courier Mail.

& # 39; I am an advocate for cycling and support for real action, because I think 20 years of being polite has done nothing and personal action is not enough. & # 39;

No arrests have yet been made.

The group also has plans to close the Brisbane CBD, scheduled for the Queen's Birthday on October 7.

Activists have sworn & # 39; non-violent civil disobedience & # 39; committing to inconvenience 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.

"We now know with certainty that not enforcing rapid and radical action against the climate crisis will lead to the death of billions of people and countless numbers of other species on this planet," the event reads.

& # 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;
