A furious driver has been filmed running over the foot of a Just Stop Oil protester.
Protest group Just Stop Oil (JSO) was formed in February last year with the aim of forcing the government to end all new licences for the exploration, development and production of fossil fuels in the country.
Their protests have caused massive controversy in the UK.
As shown in the clip above, the motorist - who was attempting to drive through Holloway Road, Islington - looked to be determined to make their way through the traffic.
Video footage shows a number of protesters attempting to stop the car from getting through.
But as one JSO member appeared to get a little too close to the car, their foot was subsequently run over in the process.
After making contact, the car sped away from the scene.
As the clip has been circulating around social media, users have been venting out their frustrations.
"Similar scenes will continue to occur until and unless something is done," one viewer thought.
"My parents taught me the green cross code when I was younger... stop look listen before crossing a road. Subsequently I've never been ran over," another added.
While someone else said: "The road is made for cars not people standing middle of it."
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson told LADbible: "Police are appealing for witnesses and dash cam footage after a person was involved in a collision with a vehicle on Holloway Road, Islington, whilst engaged in a protest, at around 10:00hrs, today Tuesday 2 May.
"The incident was brought to police attention after being circulated on social media and shows the person being involved in collision with a grey Renault Megane.
"If you were the person or have any information about the incident please report by calling 101, tweeting @MetCC or online at www.met.police.uk/."
In a video uploaded to the JSO Twitter account, a police officer tells a protester: "A Section 12 condition has been imposed on this march under the Public Order Act by Chief Inspector Scammell.
"So the condition that has been put on the march is that you have to march on the pavement.
"If you don't, people that are marching on the road will be liable for arrest. That was imposed at 10.27am."
In a statement published on New Year’s Eve, the climate change campaign group called for police and courts to stop arresting and jailing protesters.
JSO said: “If you work in the police or the judiciary, you too must break the silence.
“You don’t have to arrest brave students and pensioners. You don’t have to lock up these courageous, skilled, loving members of society.
“If you choose to do that, know what you’re doing. You’re working for death, not life. For power and profit, not care and reason. Is that what you want your life’s legacy to be?”Featured Image Credit: Twitter/@JustStop_Oil
