Two other people were arrested and charged over Blockade Australia’s climate change protests in Sydney last week.

Sydney descended into chaos over the week as climate change protesters stormed Sydney’s CBD.

A protester stopped his car in the Sydney Harbor Tunnel, blocking traffic in the south lane until police arrived to remove it.

Plans for further protests were foiled by police on Wednesday, with Polair deployed with riot squads to avoid further disruption.
