A driver has rushed through a crowd of Blockade Australia protesters in Sydney’s CBD – and narrowly avoided disaster.
The climate activists took to the streets on Monday morning to “cause disruption to the political and economic systems”.
The protesters were walking across an intersection just before 9am in the heart of the city when a driver in a grey SUV appeared to lose patience with the delays and accelerated into the demonstrators.
The vehicle slowed as it made contact with the protesters, who were pushed away, while others attempted to position themselves in front of the bonnet.
The car then pressed on with its journey forward and drove away from the group. It is understood no one was injured.

I fully support the right to protest, and WUWT certainly does not endorse violence or attacks on protestors. But surely there must be a balance? Like I’m happy for the funny green hippies dressed in fossil fuel based fabrics to wave their banners and shout their slogans, its free street theatre as far as I’m concerned. But they need to let the traffic through.
