Police had approved plans by activist group Extinction Rebellion to demonstrate on condition they would not block traffic. "It's clear Vancouver people care deeply about the climate crisis".

"We came down for the Extinction Rebellion protest which is trying to shed light on the fact that governments are seeming to keep their heads in the sand about climate crisis", said Tal Ponany.

"If there was an outbreak of disease they would declare a public health emergency", Kath, who declined to share her last name, told CBS News.

On Saturday, officers used a battering ram to gain entry to a building in south London where the activists had been storing equipment for use during the two-week protest.

As protests got under way in the capital, police were seen cutting two Extinction Rebellion protesters out of a vehicle blocking off Victoria Embankment.

He added: "We've tried everything else, we've tried politics, the Green Party, we've tried campaigns like Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, none of it has worked".

The movement hopes this round of protests will be five times bigger than their "April rebellion", and said that 5,000 people have volunteered to be arrested, 2,245 are willing to go to prison and 1,836 are willing to go on hunger strike.

The stock exchange protest featured a mock funeral with people strewn on the ground, covered in blood.

Describing the scene close to Westminster Abbey, one onlooker said: "Half of them are smoking weed, have cheap fold up tents that will just get binned and there is a bunch sitting in Pret".

"I've honestly only taken this up in the last few years, I'm not proud to say I didn't get in on it sooner, but I'm definitely here to stay".

The group with Extinction Rebellion Nova Scotia marched from the nearby Halifax Transit Bridge Terminal parking lot onto the span at around 7:30 a.m.

Protests also began in Australia and New Zealand, where hundreds of people blocked streets.

"The action is primarily aimed at de-escalation and a proper end of the blockade and a safe flow of traffic", the police stated.

Activists sang "Solid as a rock, rooted as a tree" gathered at dawn at the iconic Victory Column near Berlin's Tiergarten park.

Those at the Berlin protests included activist Carola Rackete, best known as the German captain of a humanitarian rescue ship who was arrested for docking in an Italian port without authorization this year to disembark migrants rescued at sea.

"We are concerned that the police think it's fit to direct public money and resources into penalising peaceful citizens", Ms Dorge said.

Police mounted on four horses have created a stand-off, blocking the path of the demonstrators, who are chanting "our water, our streets".
