Extinction Rebellion, which generated headlines with a semi-nude protest in the House of Commons earlier this month, has warned its members that some of them could be arrested for taking part in non-violent civil disobedience.

The group has called on the United Kingdom government to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2025 and establish a citizens' assembly to devise an emergency plan of action to tackle climate breakdown and biodiversity loss.

Protesters also gathered at Marble Arch, situated at the end of Oxford Street, at Piccadilly Circus, and Parliament Square.

Extinction Rebellion said it intentionally caused more than 6,000 pounds ($7,800) of damage to Shell's office by breaking a revolving door, spray-painting "lies" across the building and climbing the scaffolding to put up a banner saying "Shell Knows". Police arrested 85 activists that day and organizers say they expect further arrests on Monday.

But activists camped overnight to ensure blockades continued at Waterloo Bridge, Millbank and Oxford Circus.

Hundreds of protesters had also blocked Waterloo Bridge, which was closed in both directions, with campaign group Extinction Rebellion declaring on their Twitter page: "We have taken Waterloo Bridge!"

"Suddenly, what Extinction Rebellion has done is actually say: 'we are doing this.' And the state is so weak through austerity that they can't stop us". "In the majority world, indigenous communities are now on the brink of extinction".

A TfL spokesman said: "The safety of our customers and staff is our number one priority and we're working closely with the police to manage the impact on London's transport network. We must act now".

More than 100 climate change activists have been arrested after blocking roads in central London. "Our objective is to create a political crisis, if that means people being arrested and going to jail then so be it".

Police advised people travelling around London in the coming days to allow extra time for their journey in the event of road closures and general disruption.
