A pizza man braved G20 protests to deliver food



A pizza delivery driver on Friday braved violent protests in Hamburg, Germany to complete an order during the Group of 20 (G20) protests, according to ABC Action News.

The man reportedly rode a Domino’s-branded scooter during the chaos, weaving through demonstrators and passing through a human wall of police.

Hamburg authorities reportedly confirmed 160 police officers had been injured and 70 protesters arrested during Friday’s fracas.

Organizers of the “Welcome to Hell” march the night before purportedly said 14 participants were hospitalized, three with serious injuries and one claiming to be in critical condition.

Twitter users on Friday celebrated the man, who rode through demonstrations reportedly swelling with up to 4,000 protesters.

Euronews on Friday reported that the German website Fink Hamburg had identified the driver as Benjamin, 27.

Benjamin admitted that passing through Friday’s crowds was “really dangerous” but both he and his scooter had made their trip unscathed.

The G20 is a global forum for the governments and central banks of the world’s 20 largest economies.

This year’s edition runs through Saturday and featured the first in-person encounter between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin Friday.
Hamburg police have repeatedly employed tear gas, water cannons and crowd control formations against protesters during this week’s summit.

Demonstrators have rallied over issues ranging from anti-capitalism, climate change and government oppression.
