BA Target of Protest at EuroPride - Oh well...

British Airways Target of Protest at EuroPride

See for yourselves. Oh well

After reading it a second time, the part I liked the most was the ad on the right side of the page: "Private, clothing-optional resort for men in Old Town Key West"...

You're right, but IMHO this is a different matter. The other thread was related to the fact that BA was sponsoring the Europride. This one is about Ba getting targeted for "deporting rape victims", so to speak.

According to the article "BA deported" a few people, as if they had the authority to do so.

Anyway, there are so many new threads about the 'best seat in NCW on a 747', I don't see why this couldn't be treated as a separate thread.

Actually the complaint in the article is BA did not "challenge the Home Office." That's a little weak. It sounds like they were denied asylum and BA returned them to the home country.
