The disruptive group, which aims to pressure the Government into abandoning fossil fuels once and for all, have boasted today of marching in Holland Park, west London, for 45 minutes without police showing up.
As protesters took to the streets of London again today, a furious passerby ripped the group’s trademark orange banners out of their hands and shouted: ‘People are trying to get to f*****g work. Get out the way.’
Amid the chaos, a man who appeared to be joining the slow march – and was filming content of it – hit one of the motorist’s car, sparking further fury.
The passerby shouted: ‘Don’t f*****g hit his car’. But the activist replied: ‘I’ll f*****g do what I want.’
The driver then got out of his vehicle and screamed: ‘It’s a f*****g brand new electric car.’
