15 Dec 2008 1:42 PM

A group of protesters is occupying KEVIN RUDD's Brisbane electorate office.

The Brisbane Southside Climate Action Group has described the government's emissions targets announced today as weak.

Spokeswoman KRISTY WALTERS says they're asking for a 50 per cent target by 2020 and peak carbon emissions by 2010.

The group arrived shortly after the prime minister's announcement.

Five members of the group are staging a sit-in in the foyer of Mr RUDD's office.

About 10 other group members are outside the office bearing banners and giving out leaflets.
