Man Shoves Climate Protesters To Get A Burger

Man Shoves Climate Protesters To Get A Burger

A Danish man has been filmed being grabbed and held back by what appear to be Extinction Rebellion protesters as he attempts to push his way through a crowd to get a burger.

He begins shouting in Danish at the activists, who look like they're holding Extinction Rebellion flags. They still don't let him through and so the man tries to barge his way in, telling them to 'f***ing move'.

One protester then tries to grab hold of his arm and tries to pull him back. The crowd parts and the man makes his way through, with the original protester who grabbed him then turning his back and looking away.

He squares up to the protester and threatens to hit him, asking the crowd: "Do you have a f***ing problem?"

Telling the protesters to 'behave themselves' he shouts: "You f***ing hippies!"

A new wave of protests has begun today, with climate change demonstrations taking place across the world. Extinction Rebellion are planning two weeks of 'civil disobedience', with activists in Denmark, Germany, France, Spain, Australia, India, New Zealand and the UK taking part.

Extinction Rebellion say it is their biggest movement yet, with more than 850 events planned across 60 cities worldwide.

The group made headlines last week when protesters lost control of a hose as they tried to splatter the government building with a red substance.

Footage was released showing members of the group - who were using a decommissioned fire engine during their stunt - as they scramble to get control of the powerful hose, covering themselves and the building in 'blood'.

Those involved say 1,800 litres of fake blood were used during the demonstration.

According to the group, they were 'highlighting the inconsistency between the UK government's insistence that the UK is a world leader in tackling climate breakdown, and the vast sums it pours into fossil fuel exploration and carbon-intensive projects'.

Protesters from all demographics are taking part, with even an 83-year-old grandmother joining in the protests.
