Watch: Just Stop Oil activists disrupt London’s Pride parade


The mayor of Labor said the group puts pressure on those in power and influence, adding: “I agree with protesting in a way that is lawful, safe and peaceful. I fully support the right to demonstrate.”

Asked about Just Stop Oil’s threat to disrupt Pride, Mr Khan said: “I am someone who feels very passionately that we need to tackle the climate crisis. And I feel pretty passionate about encouraging people to join the movement to tackle the climate crisis.

LGBTQ+ members of Just Stop Oil also called on Pride organizers to ban floats from sponsors like United Airlines and condemn new oil, gas and coal projects.

They said in a statement: “These partnerships embarrass the LGBTQ+ community at a time when much of the cultural world rejects ties to these toxic industries,” adding that LGBT+ people “suffer first” in the “accelerated social collapse” caused by climate change.
