The South Australian government will increase fines for public obstruction from $750 to $50,000 in the wake of recent protests by Extinction Rebellion activists.

The climate action group has caused havoc in Adelaide this week protesting the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association conference being held at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

On Wednesday a 69-year-old woman caused peak hour traffic to be diverted for 90 minutes by dangling herself from the Morphett Street Bridge above North Terrace.

On Thursday protestors threw paint at oil company Santos’ Flinders Street office.
