In the wake of the so-called climate crisis, climate change protests are happening all across the world. Most famously, you'll probably be familiar with the school strike protests spurred on by teenage activist, Greta Thunberg.
But now, a new wave of action is being taken by the environmental pressure group, Extinction Rebellion. Over the next 2 weeks, the group is carrying out what they describe as their biggest movement yet, with more than 850 events planned across sixty cities worldwide to take a stand against climate change.
This means that activists in the likes of Denmark, Germany, France, Spain, Australia, India, New Zealand, and the UK will be taking part.
But one man wasn't happy with the disruption the protests were causing outside a burger chain in Denmark. Feeling pretty hangry and with the protesters blocking the entrance, all hell broke loose as he pushed his way through to get a burger.

Climate change is a serious issue.
via: ShutterstockThe devastating impacts of global warming and our consistent inability to do anything about it is sending our planet down a very bleak path.
From soaring temperatures to rising sea levels, global warming seems to be hitting the headlines more than ever.
via: ShutterstockIn the wake of extreme weather conditions and natural disasters last year, The UN warned that we have just twelve years to limit climate change and prevent global warming from exceeding the maximum of 1.5C.
Despite stark warnings, many people seem to bury their heads in the sand on the issue.
via: Getty ImagesWorryingly, our very own president, Donald Trump, is one of those people, who continually deny that global warming is even a thing in the first place. And, if this is what our political leaders believe, then what chance do we have?
He's not the only one who denies its existence.
via: Getty ImagesSeveral “climate deniers" believe that the rapidly rising temperatures is simply a result of the earth’s “natural cycle," just like the ice age. Although this has since been proven wrong after experts established that the climate change that we are experiencing is on a scale that far exceeds temperature fluctuations during the last 2 millennia.
The issue only seems to be escalating.

Greta Thunberg has somewhat become the face of the climate change movement.
And with protests regularly taking place across the globe...
via: Getty ImagesThe movement is now gaining support and attention on a grand scale.
But there's a new wave of protests taking place...
via: Getty ImagesOver the next 2 weeks, environmental pressure group, Extinction Rebellion, is carrying out a period of "civil disobedience" in what they describe as their largest global movement to date. They call this the "International Rebellion," which began on October 7.
The group famously hit headlines last week...Protesters for the group in the UK lost control of a hose as they tried to splatter the government building with a red substance.
Kicking off this week, more than 850 events are planned across sixty cities worldwide.
via: Getty ImagesActivists in the likes of Denmark, Germany, France, Spain, Australia, India, New Zealand, and the UK will be taking part.
The group aims to use non-violent civil disobedience to compel government action against issues surrounding the climate "emergency."
via: Getty ImagesOn Sunday, activists taking part held an opening ceremony in London as an official start to the protests.
And now, the protests are well and truly underway.
via: Getty ImagesA spokesperson for the group explained: "The next two weeks will involve marches and family-friendly events, there’ll be some spicier actions as well and some will be arrestable. "We’ve had 4,000 rebels sign up and say they are willing to be arrested – which is a huge increase on the number arrested in April of 1,000."
But, one man in Denmark wasn't happy with the disruption some of the group's demonstrators were causing.
via: Getty ImagesActivists in Aarhus, Denmark, are taking part in the protests, but footage has gone viral of them landed themselves in trouble with one hangry man.
The group was blocking the entrance to a burger chain in the Danish city.
via: TwitterThe protestors, who can be seen donning the Extinction Rebellion flag, clearly got on the wrong side of a man who was determined to get a burger.
In the footage, the furious man can be seen shouting at the activists.
via: TwitterHe wasn't impressed by being denied his burger fix.
The situation quickly escalated...
via: TwitterAs the man became increasingly irritated, he starts pushing his way through the group of demonstrators, while screaming at them - telling them to "f*cking move."
The man starts knocking over several people.
via: TwitterAnd one protestor can be seen to grab his arm to defuse the situation.
But that only made matters worse...
via: TwitterThe man can then be seen turning back to the protestor and angrily threatening to hit him. He then turns around and calls the campaigner's "******* hippies."
It seems nothing was getting in the way or him and his burger.
via: TwitterHe eventually made his way through, but it's clear it wasn't without a fight.
