Protesters dragged by security from Parliament House

ABOUT 100 protestors staged a "sit-in" in Parliament House on Wednesday, calling on the Turnbull Government to do more on climate change.

The peaceful protest came to a head with Australian Federal Police and parliamentary security staff called in to remove the protestors after about half an hour.

Protestors chanted "We will not be moved" as police removed them one by one from parliament's Marble Foyer.

Among those protesting were environmentalists and indigenous traditional owners urging more be done to prevent climate change.

It came as Prime Minister Malcoml Turnbull returned from the United Nations climate change conference in Paris.

He confirmed the government's current carbon emissions reduction target of 26-28% by 2030, but did not promise a larger target.
