When they stop people getting to work the police leave them alone, but: Seven arrested after Just Stop Oil protest stops London Pride march

Seven people have been arrested after Just Stop Oil disrupted the London Pridemarch as part of their campaign to stop new fossil fuel projects in the UK.

The group had threatened to protest at the event due to London Pride’s sponsor, United Airlines, earlier this week.

Following through with the threat, a group of LGBTQ+ supporters of Just Stop Oil blocked the Pride parade by sitting in front of the Coca-Cola float.

While the float was blocked, two other activists sprayed pink and black paint over the road.

A Met Police spokesperson said seven people were arrested for “public nuisance” shortly after the road was blocked at 1.30pm. The force said the road was cleared after around fifteen minutes and that the parade continued.

A Just Stop Oil spokesperson said: “Pride was born from protest. It speaks to how far we’ve come as a community, that high polluting industries and the banks that fund them, now see Pride as a useful vehicle for sanitising their reputations, waving rainbow flags in one hand whilst accelerating social collapse with the other. It is queer people, and particularly queer people of colour in the global south, who are suffering first in this accelerating social breakdown.
