There’s been major disruption across Sydney, as climate protesters take to the streets and block CBD roads

NSW Police officers chased dozens of climate protesters who were seen throwing milk crates, and barricades.

The Sydney Harbour Tunnel has now reopened but the organisation says it will hold more protests this week.
