THIS is the shocking moment a ranting man shoved a Just Stop Oil protester to the ground before smashing another’s phone.
Activists were filmed marching through East London wearing high-vis orange vests and carrying banners when a passerby got physical with the group.
In the clip, shot from a window overlooking the street, the furious man can be seen snatching at the placards and pushing the environmentalists as they slowed down traffic.
He then snatched one of their phones and hurled it into the pavement, having previously slapped it out of their hand.
After tossing the gadget away, he stood in front of the slow-walking crowd and raised his arms while yelling at them.
It is not known what the man was shouting as he can’t be heard over the horns of frustrated motorists.

The person he shoved over stood up again and walked off the road to sit on the pavement.
The man continued to argue with the protesters and tried to usher them off the street as the clip ended.
Just Stop Oil said that they were unsure if any of their activists were injured during a series of protests held today across London.
The Metropolitan Police provided regular updates on their Twitter page and said that they were aware of the demonstrations, but did not announce any arrests.
