Arrests are underway as environmental protesters kicked off what they dubbed a “global rebellion” for the climate today. Protests organized by the group Extinction Rebellion are planned throughout 60 cities over the week.

There have been more than 135 arrests so far in London, although Extinction Rebellion said as many as 1,000 people have volunteered for arrest. In Sydney, 30 people have been arrested, including four protesters under the age of 16, The Guardian reports. Hundreds more were removed from a sit-in blocking a main road, according to the BBC. The actions are expected to continue across the US.
