Protesters have let out a "primal roar" from the steps of Victoria's parliament in the hope Canberra hears them and does more to tackle climate change.
About 100 people gathered outside parliament in Melbourne on Saturday to make a minute-long "primal roar for the climate".
It was organised by Rally Extinction, a group demanding the federal government follow the UK's lead in declaring a climate emergency. It also wants to see greenhouse gas emissions drop to zero by 2025.
"Our government isn't acting in accordance with what science and history tells us," organiser Shannon Loughnane said.
"We have a moral duty to rebel, whatever our politics. History shows us that peaceful civil disobedience is an effective way to bring about change."
The latest rally came a week after the protesters lay "dead" in Melbourne's CBD to draw attention to climate change.
