Climate protests are happening daily across the world as many flock to the streets to save the planet

Protesters from the group Extinction Rebellion have engaged in a series of ongoing protests around the world. The group wants to raise awareness of the threat of climate change and seeks net zero carbon emission by the year 2025.

One member donned a broccoli costume in London and was apprehended by the Metropolitan police. Elsewhere in London, a protester glued himself to the top of a British Airways plane at the city airport.

In New York, protesters disrupted traffic in Times Square and dozens ended up being detained by police. Members of Extinction Rebellion also defaced the bull statue near Wall Street. The bull — which some see as a symbol of capitalism — was smeared with fake blood.

Hundreds of protesters reportedly were arrested in Brussels, as Belgian police sprayed them with water cannons.
