Immovable object meets unstoppable force: Climate crazies stop London Pride in its tracks

The London Pride march celebrating those who pursue alternative sexual lifestyles was stopped in its tracks Saturday when militant climate activists blocked a Coca-Cola float by lying down in the street.

The climate crazies were protesting event organizers accepting sponsorship money from “high-polluting industries,” according to the Associated Press, which reported that seven members of the group Just Stop Oil were arrested for public nuisance offenses –odds are good that they were soon released.

“#LondonPride was shut down for a time as radical environmentalist group Just Stop Oil made good on their promise to disrupt the event. Just Stop Oil had demanded London Pride disclose their corporate financing & to commit to the anti-fossil fuel cause,” independent journalist Andy Ngô tweeted, while sharing video of the encounter.

“These partnerships embarrass the LGBTQ+ community at a time when much of the cultural world is rejecting ties to these toxic industries,” the group said, according to AP. “High-polluting industries and the banks that fund them now see Pride as a useful vehicle for sanitizing their reputations, waving rainbow flags in one hand whilst accelerating social collapse with the other.”

While such actions are quickly deemed to be homophobic under any other circumstance, Pride in London spokesperson De’Athe-Morris was faced with quite a conundrum and tip-toed ever so gently through the tulips.

“Pride is a protest and pride is a celebration,” De’Athe-Morris told the BBC. “Anyone who tries to disrupt that protest and parade is really letting down those people who use this space once a year to come together to celebrate and protest for those rights.”
