Protesters arrested Adelaide, South Australia

Six people have been arrested following a protest in the Adelaide CBD this morning.

Just after 8am Wednesday 10 March emergency services were called to Flinders Street after reports protesters had blocked a road and climbed onto a building.

Patrols closed Flinders Street between King William and Pulteney Street while police, paramedics and fire crews removed the people who had glued themselves to the building and the road.

About 11am all six protesters were arrested and the road was reopened.

A 32-year-old Paradise woman and a 64-year-old Flagstaff Hill man both who climbed onto a building have been charged with being unlawfully on premises, property damage and disturbing the peace. The woman was bailed to appear at a later date, the man did not apply for bail and is expected to face the AMC today.

A 70-year-old North Plympton woman, 65-year-old Flaxley woman, 38-year-old Mile End woman and 65-year-old Henley Beach South woman were charged with loitering.

Police would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding.
