Extinction Rebellion protestors have chained themselves to barrels, causing chaos in the Sydney CBD.

Permission was given for a civil protest involving Extinction Rebellion at the Intersection of Bathurst and George Streets.

However police were on the scene, and arrested and charged five people aged 23, 32, 36, 40 and 59, for obstructing road and street traffic, climbing buildings and refusing to comply with police directions.

A car was spotted driving through a banner and stopping just short of demonstrators.

Nine News Reporter James Wilson has captured video of a police officer trying to reason with a protestor.

 

Mr Wilson told Ben Fordham the protestors are no longer blocking the road.

“There’s chanting, there’s banners and there’s drums going off around the city.

“More protestors have arrived.”
