Climate activists will target cities across Australia in day two of a week-long action campaign.

The first day of Extinction Rebellion protests on Monday saw 30 arrests in Sydney and 10 in Melbourne, including one activist who refused to enter a bail agreement and will appear in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The movement is running a "spring rebellion" to pressure the Australian government into declaring a climate emergency.
