They are backed by Thunberg, the Swedish teen whose searing UN address in September made global headlines, and by academics studying the increasing temperatures and sea levels.
Their protests have irritated drivers and some authorities but raised the hopes of those who see climate change as a threat to the planet.
In London, where the Extinction Rebellion movement was born last year, demonstrators put up structures on Westminster Bridge in the shadow of Britain’s parliament.
Police had actually made 217 arrests by 17:15 pm (1615 GMT).
“Getting apprehended sends out a message to the government that otherwise obedient people are desperate,” IT consultant Oshik Romem, from Israel however operating in Britain for 19 years, told AFP while sitting on a road outside parliament.

— ‘Running out of time’– Hundreds of Australians joined a sit-in on a busy inner Sydney roadway prior to being dragged away by the authorities. Thirty people were later on charged.
“We have attempted petitions, lobbying and marches, and now time is going out,” Australian activist Jane Morton stated.
Australia’s conservative federal government has actually resisted embracing brand-new ecological requirements and backed financially rewarding coal exports.
Demonstrations happened in 60 cities around the world, including New Delhi, Cape Town, Paris, Vienna, Madrid and Toronto.
At New York’s Battery Park, some 200 demonstrators participated in a “funeral march” to Wall Street, where protesters threw phony blood over the monetary district’s well-known bronze statue of a bull.
“We need imagery like this in order to get people’s attention,” 29-year-old James Comiskey told AFP, as he brought a cardboard casket in the procession.
Authorities jailed around a dozen people who staged a sit-in by the bull.
Advocates in Dublin wheeled in a pink yacht and parked it outside the workplace of Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.
“We are running out of time,” Dutch protester Shirleen Chin told AFP in Amsterdam.
Dutch cops said they detained 90 individuals after Extinction Rebellion members inhabited a bridge outside the well known Rijksmuseum art gallery.

— ‘Burn industrialism!’– The motion is partly credited with pressing the UK federal government in June to become the first in the Europe Union to dedicate itself to a net-zero target for hazardous emissions by 2050.
Extinction Rebellion is demanding governments reach that target by 2025, as well as holding “people assemblies” to pick policies to attain that objective.
The parliament in Norway, not an EU member, in June embraced a target of 2030.
There has been less motion in other parts of Europe or the most impacted cities of Asia.
And not everyone out on the streets was impressed with the campaign.
“They’re taking it out on daily people attempting to tackle their service. They need to go after big individuals,” London cabby Dave Chandler informed AFP.
Extinction Rebellion counters that emergency situations like the one heating up the climate needs action from everyone across the world.
Hundreds barricaded themselves inside a Paris shopping mall for hours over the weekend.
Groups unfurled banners with slogans such as “Burn industrialism, not petrol” above Paris dining establishments and style shops.
And hundreds brought blankets and sleeping bags to one of the main roundabouts in central Berlin which authorities anticipate to be closed down for many days.
Termination Rebellion’s tactics in Australia prompted senior conservative political leaders to require protesters’ well-being payments to be cut.
Sydney assistant police commissioner Mick Willing accused protesters of putting themselves and others at threat, cautioning that such disruptive demonstrations in the future would “not be tolerated”.
