As celebrities resembling Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lawrence in addition to Kate Middleton and Prince William arrived on the 2018 BAFTA Movie Awards, a number of members of a feminist protest group crashed the world to stage a political demonstration, prompting police to intervene.

Sporting black and purple tops that learn “Occasions Up Theresa,” a few dozen protesters from Sisters Uncut linked arms and lined up and even lay down on the pink carpet on the Royal Albert Corridor in London earlier than the ceremony on Sunday. Police ultimately moved the group. Police have been referred to as and the group quickly left. No arrests have been made and the protesters made no contact with well-known friends.

“Sisters Uncut stormed the BAFTA pink carpet to protest [British Prime Minister] Theresa Might‘s upcoming Home Violence and Abuse Invoice, which they are saying will criminalize survivors whereas distracting from devastating funding cuts to home violence providers nationwide,” the group stated in a press launch, including that the U.Okay. chief’s home violence insurance policies will depart survivors “locked up in jail, locked out of refuges, and locked in to violent relationships.”

On the BAFTAs, movie stars wore black to help the worldwide Time’s Up marketing campaign to cease sexual harassment and inequality within the office.

“We’re in solidarity with the Time’s Up marketing campaign,” the Sisters Uncut press launch quoted protester Ana Kaur as saying. “Just like the Alianza Nacional De Campesinas, we acknowledge that gender-based mostly violence occurs all over the place, and that to reveal abuse requires help. In addition to calling Time’s Up on particular person perpetrators, we have now to name Time’s Up on our authorities for failing to offer us with actual choices and help.”
