Events as they unfolded

  • Greenpeace protesters took solar panels and banners on to the roof of the Parliament buildings
  • The organisation tweeted that it was a reaction to Prime Minister John Key's inaction on climate change
  • Police said it was more risky to arrest the protesters than to leave them up there
  • The two men and two women eventually came down of their own accord
