Protesters interrupted the Capital Pride Parade in Washington, D.C. late Saturday, saying the event was not inclusive to minorities and was influenced too much by corporations.

“Capital Pride has consistently demonstrated that it is more interested in accommodating the interests of Metropolitan police and of corporate sponsors than it is in supporting the very communities it supposedly represents,” No Justice No Pride wrote in a statement.

The group’s protestors linked arms to block the parade route near 15th and P streets NW, according to The Washington Post.

The Capital Pride Parade had to be rerouted down 16th Street NW instead.
