Climate Change Protest Takes Place In Dublin City Centre

Climate change protesters say they're sorry for the traffic disruption caused by the demonstration on Dublin's O'Connell Bridge.

This protest follows a week of demonstrations in London where hundreds of people have been arrested.

It’s being organised by Extinction Rebellion, who say it’s to send a message to Governments worldwide that action on climate change is critically needed.

Protestors are blocking lanes of traffic from crossing O’Connell Bridge, which is leading to disruption for traffic.

Organisers say they are sympathetic to people who will be impacted, but added that it is necessary to send a message.

Extinction Rebellion says they will protest until the Government agrees to their demands or until they are removed from the Gardai
