The Extinction Rebellion activist group is planning to hold a “Rebellion Day” protest in Brisbane on Tuesday, August 6. Thousands of people are expected to attend the rally, which is intended to disrupt traffic and businesses in the CBD. The demonstration is scheduled to be held from 09:00 until 21:00 (local time). While the rally is expected to be non-violent, a heightened police presence and significant traffic disruptions are anticipated in the area.
Climate change activists have held multiple rallies in Brisbane throughout the month of July. On July 11, activists caused significant traffic disruptions in the CBD during the morning rush hour. The group is calling for the government to take immediate action to address climate change issues. Activists are also protesting the recent approval of a new coal mine in Queensland.
Individuals in Brisbane are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, allow additional time to travel, and plan for alternative routes.
