The Extinction Rebellion protests that have been taking place around the world and in Australia in recent weeks will come to Cairns on Friday.

A small group protested today outside of the Cairns Post and warned they would be back with a stronger presence on Friday.

Group member, Zelda Grimshaw told the Cairns Post today, "that the group‘s aim was to disrupt the city during business hours and they were not concerned about alienating potential supporters inconvenienced by protest action".

On Friday they will barricade themselves in the Cairns CBD at the corner of Abbott and Shields Street.
