Climate activists disrupt London Pride march to protest corporate sponsorship


LONDON (AP) — Climate activists have briefly halted the dance-filled London Pride march by blocking a float sponsored by Coca-Cola. Seven members of the group Just Stop Oil were arrested on Saturday after protesting march organizers for accepting sponsorship money from “high-polluting industries.” The protest stopped the march for a little more than 15 minutes until police carried the protesters away. The demonstration was the latest in a long line of disruptive actions by the group Just Stop Oil in its campaign to stop new oil and gas projects. This was the 51st year of London’s Pride march. The theme of “Never March Alone” was adopted in support of transgender and non-binary people.
