Earlier this month anti-Adani protesters from the same group shut down a busy Brisbane road to protest against the approval of a new coal mine. 

Two people glued themselves to a pedestrian crossing on Queen Street in Brisbane CBD as part of the climate change protest.

Police were forced to close the busy road from 7.50am.

Extinction Rebellion Australia said it is time to take a stand in a twitter post.

‘Today I’m sacrificing my liberty to be a voice to protect life on earth.’

‘It’s no longer acceptable to vote and think the government is going to change anything. What the government is doing is not acceptable!’
