Shocking video shows protester carried along on bonnet of car before falling to road and requiring emergency ambulance
Video captured by a YouTuber shows a protester from Saturday’s Nakba Day pro-Palestinian march in London – one of many around the country – being carried along on the bonnet of a speeding car, after apparently being intentionally driven at, then falling to the road and being surrounded by shocked fellow-protesters, with police and paramedics subsequently attending. The incident took place on Kensington High Street at around 9pm.
The footage was streamed by YouTuber ‘Immortal Aliens Live IRL‘:
Despite the shocking nature of the footage and the apparently intentional nature of the attack – the car is seen speeding a considerable distance with the protester clinging to the bonnet, before leaving the scene – the so-called ‘mainstream’ news media appear to be ignoring the incident. Skwawkbox and its correspondents on the attack have not been able to locate any ‘msm’ coverage.
Whether the incident was politically motivated or a ‘road rage’ incident is not yet clear. The Met Police say that the driver failed to stop at the scene and the force’s enquiries continue. A second protester was also injured, though not captured in the footage. By what appears to have been sheer good fortune, neither is understood to have been seriously injured.
Protesters flooded the streets in towns and cities around the UK on Saturday, horrified by the deaths of hundreds of Palestinian civilians in Gaza as Israel escalated its aggression after Palestinians resisted eviction from their homes.
