Climate change group Extinction Rebellion have taken their protest to City Hall in Bristol ahead of a full council meeting.
The action is a part of a five day protest by the group as they campaign for the government to lower its 2050 goal for zero carbon emissions to 2025.
On Tuesday evening Bristol City Mayor, Marvyn Rees, will outline what action the authority will take after declaring a climate emergency in November 2018.
That actions includes:
- Committing to a new target for the council’s direct emissions to be carbon neutral by 2025.
- Delivering a climate change public engagement programme for citizens of the city.
- Holding the first meeting of the new Environmental Sustainability Board in July 2019.
- Continuing to call on Government to create the right conditions for cities, businesses and citizens to act.
Bristol City Council say they are trying to keep disruption to a minimum but have been working with protestors to "ensure there is fair a balance between our legal obligation for people’s right to peaceful protest and our need to keep the city moving".
Avon and Somerset Police will have an around-the-clock presence for as long as the protests last, with more than 1,000 people expected to take part.
On Tuesday, the force issued a reminder to drivers following "incidents" where motorists had driven "recklessly" as a result of the protests.
On the first day of protests, major routes around the city were blocked as protesters held back traffic at the Bearpit on Monday afternoon. Bristol Bridge was also closed off as a giant pink boat blocked the road.
