LGBT activists staged a vigil outside London City Hall yesterday in protest over BAE Systems’ involvement in the capital’s annual Pride parade.
The vigil organisers, a coalition of LGBT, pacifist and anti-militarist groups, say the company’s participation is part of a “pinkwashing” campaign.
The firm sells arms to countries with homophobic laws such as Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.
Peace Pledge Union co-ordinator Symon Hill said: “Of course people who work for the armed forces or arms companies are welcome at Pride.
“That is different to giving a platform to the likes of BAE Systems and the Royal Air Force to pinkwash their image despite their complicity in human-rights abuses around the world.”
