BOSTON (WHDH) - Climate activist group Extinction Rebellion held a protest outside Park Station, with many protestors lying down in the middle of Tremont Street, blocking traffic during rush hour.

Event organizers said they want the government to take action to avoid a climate disaster.

Boston Police blocked off the street and redirected traffic as protestors laid on the pavement by Boston Common.

Protesters later cleared the area and traffic returned to normal around 7 p.m.
