An invitation to become a party member

In the wake of the highly successful International Conference on Men’s Issues (2016), which we co-hosted with A Voice for Men, we invited people concerned about the assaults on men’s and boys’ human rights to become party members. Subscriptions from party members (and others) have since become the financial lifeblood of our political party.

Nobody connected with the party has ever drawn any personal income from party subscriptions and donations, and we don’t expect that to change. If it does change, we shall make a public announcement to that effect, and contact all party members, asking if they wish to continue with their subscriptions.

When J4MB was launched in February 2013, we had no basis for forecasting how well, if at all, we would be received by the general public. At that time the prevailing public conviction was that feminists pursue gender equality, in stark contrast to what was demonstrably true, and remains so.

Only a small minority of women (9% in the UK, according to the Fawcett Society) self-identify as feminists. Feminists seek gender supremacy, regardless of the impact on men, women, boys, girls, families, public institutions, and wider society. They are driven by misandry (the hatred of men). If anyone should doubt the truth of these assertions, we invite them to read our 2015 general election manifesto in which we explored 20 areas where the human rights of men and/or boys are assaulted by the actions and inactions of the state, almost always to privilege women and/or girls. There are no areas in which the state assaults the human rights of women and/or girls specifically.

The 20 areas are as follows. The human rights of females – including the unborn – are assaulted in three areas, in bold text:

Abortion

Foetal alcohol syndrome

Genital mutilation

Fatherlessness, restoring strong families

Education

Employment

Access to children after family breakdowns

Domestic violence

Sexual abuse

Armed Forces veterans’ mental health issues

Homelessness

Suicide

Criminal justice system

Paternity fraud

Anonymity for suspected sexual offenders

Divorce

Healthcare provision

Political representation

State interference in director appointments

Expectation of retirement years

The assaults on men and boys are often led or enabled by feminists in influential positions e.g. Theresa May MP (Prime Minister, formerly Home Secretary) and Alison Saunders (Director of Public Prosecutions). Most of the assaults, however, are led by men – often at the behest of feminists – with no concern for the wellbeing of men and boys as a class.

J4MB is the only political party in the English-speaking world campaigning for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts. We’re also the only anti-feminist political party in the English-speaking world. We continue to be wholly reliant on party members and donors to cover the party’s costs.

Supporters (including donors) tell us we can be proud of what we’ve achieved in the past four years. Donors have sent sums ranging from £1 to £2,000. We’ve had over 100 appearances on mainstream television and radio – here. Countless newspaper, magazine, and blog pieces have been written about us. The tone of the reporting has sometimes been challenging and antagonistic, which we expected, but we’ve been delighted by the interest we have triggered in some of the most unlikely people. We can be sure that we’ve broken the blanket belief that men’s and boys’ issues are either non-existent, or unimportant. The comments streams following online articles have been very supportive of J4MB and what we’re seeking to achieve.

Our long-term strategy is to challenge the party in power (or parties, in the event of a coalition) because only they have the power to reverse anti-male legislation and policy directions.

We’re working towards the 2020 general election, in which we’ll field candidates in Conservatives marginal seats. In coalition with the Liberal Democrats from 2010, and in sole power from 2015, the Conservatives have been no less anti-male than the Labour party, in some areas going even further than the Labour administrations of 1997-2010.

We’re going to raise our game in a number of areas, which will require a stronger financial base. We wish to increase our membership base in order to meet increasing campaigning costs, and to help build a ‘war chest’ for the 2020 general election.

One popular and highly visible way of supporting our party is to order a polo shirt, T-shirt, or sweatshirt, from the J4MB store. Shirts are available in men’s and women’s designs, in a wide variety of colours and sizes, in cotton or polycotton, and several designs are available. J4MB receives a commission of £2.50 for each shirt sold.

We invite you to become a party member. It’s the most efficient way to demonstrate your support of our work, reducing the need for the periodic appeals upon which we relied in the past. It also frees up our time for political campaigning, which would otherwise be spent on fundraising.

We’ve established a range of membership grades, ranging from monthly sums of £5.00 (16 pence per day) to £100.00 (£3.28 per day):

Membership grade                  Monthly donation                   

Bronze                                                        £5.00

Silver                                                          £10.00

Gold                                                            £25.00

Platinum                                                    £50.00

Diamond                                                    £100.00

Members will receive a signed membership certificate, one of the A3 leaflets we were distributing during the 2015 general election – the window poster element is here – and two individually numbered blue silicone wristbands.

We’d prefer you set up a Standing Order payable directly into the J4MB account, thereby ensuring the full sum of your donations go to J4MB. Our account details:

Account name: Justice for Men & Boys

Sort code: 309054

Account number: 54880968

IBAN: GB08LOYD30905454880968

BIC: LOYDGB21090

Monthly donations can be set up through PayPal, although (small) commissions are taken from donations made that way:

If you want to put in place a regular donation of another amount, we would of course be deeply grateful.

Please email me mike@j4mb.org.uk with the membership grade you’ve settled on, the name you’d like printed on your membership certificate, and your address. Thank you for your support.

Best wishes,

Mike Buchanan

The second International Conference on Men’s Issues (London) was a resounding success

10 July 2016 - group shot

The conference finished yesterday, and the overwhelming consensus was that it had been a resounding success. 200 people attended, from 20 countries. All 20 presentations – five of them by women, one by Philip Davies MP (C, Shipley) – were well received, and the attendees greatly enjoyed the social side of the event as well.

Videos of the presentations are on our YouTube and Vimeo channels.

Manchester bomb victims – RIP Philip Tron (32), Liam Curry (19), Martyn Hett, Marcin Klis (42), John Atkinson (26), as well as the 17 female victims

At the start of the Channel 4 programme May v Corbyn Live: The Battle for Number 10 which started half an hour ago – it will finish at 10:00 – Jeremy Corbyn was asked a terrorism-related question. Within seconds he expressed sympathy for the ‘young women and girls’ who lost their lives in the recent Manchester suicide bombing. He didn’t consider the loss of (five) men’s lives even worth mentioning. What would it have taken for him to show sympathy for the ‘men, women, and children’ who died in the blast?

Rod Liddle: This is the worst Tory campaign ever

A piece in the current edition of The Spectator. Why did Theresa May choose 8 June as polling day? Because she knew I’d be at the conference in Australia that day and for several days afterwards, what other possible explanation could there be?

Quentin Letts calls Theresa May a ‘glumbucket’

Enjoy (video, 1:17). Mrs May adopts a facial expression not unlike that of Kezia Dugdale, leader of the Scottish Labia party, to which we linked a day or two ago.

Graham Mills is raising £50,000 to create a fairer legal precedent for maintenance payments

Our proposals on divorce and divorce settlements are on pp.57-60 of our 2015 general election manifesto.

Three months ago we posted a piece, Maria Mills, 51, is a parasite. An extract:

Senior judges at the Court of Appeal in London have now ordered that Mrs Mills’s monthly payouts be increased to £1,441 and told her ex-husband that he must support her for life as she is unable to meet her basic needs.

Their ruling came despite pleas by Mr Mills that he should not be the insurer against the wife’s poor financial decisions and forced to “pick up the tab” 15 years after they separated. It will fuel pressure for reform to end the so-called meal-ticket for life.

My thanks to Paul for pointing me to to an appeal by the husband in this case, Graham Mills, who wants to take the matter to the Supreme Court. He’s seeking £50,000, and we wish him every success in raising the money, and dealing a blow to parasitical ex-wives. Paul tells me he learned of the appeal after Baroness Deech re-tweeted it.

Cammelia Cheshire: “My mum and brother both ended their lives after he was falsely accused of rape.”

Our thanks to John for this. He writes:

Mike,

At least three papers covered an interview with Jay Cheshire’s sister yesterday. Obviously an incredibly important case and unsurprisingly she contemplated suicide too. One has to wonder how many other families have been wiped out by false allegations.

The original interview is in the Mirror. [J4MB: above link]

Other coverage by the Mail and Sun. Needless to say, I can’t find anything on the BBC.

Fighting feminism: Let’s get practical

The speech I’ll be giving at the Australian conference in 13 days’ time will be titled, ‘Let’s Get Visible: Beyond Keyboard Activism’. It will be the last speech of the conference. I’ve been giving it a lot of thought in recent weeks, and part of my preparations has been a review of materials produced in recent years by MRAs, including my own materials.

In December 2012, two months before the launch of J4MB, I penned the first of my many articles published by AVfM, Fighting feminism: Let’s get practical. I think much of the analysis is as valid today as it was then, and some of the content will make it into my speech.

A library of all my 60+ AVfM pieces is here.

General election: Conservatives outline domestic violence plans. Denial of the existence of male victims continues as usual.

Our thanks to Jeff for this piece on the BBC. He writes:

Perhaps with the new commission the Conservatives are proposing, Mike, they will identify that men are also victims in a significant number of cases of DV and should be helped as well.

Sadly, Jeff’s optimism is surely misplaced. Feminists working for Women’s Aid and other organizations in the DV industry are deeply influential in the Home Office and in other relevant government departments. There is no mention in the BBC piece of male victims, and the photograph at the top is of a man’s clenched fist, with a woman cowering in the background. Excerpts:

Ms Rudd [Home Secretary] said: “The fact is that across the country [standards] are varied, and part of [the reason for] this legislation and having a commissioner is to make sure that we raise standards everywhere, so that women [J4MB: our emphasis] get a good service, wherever they are.” [J4MB: Ms Rudd cannot be bothered to even pretend to give a damn about male victims.]

Sarah Green, co-director of the End Violence Against Women [J4MB: our emphasis] Coalition, welcomed the Conservative plans…

“We hope for an end to women [J4MB: our emphasis] and children being forced to flee for their lives while perpetrators [J4MB translation: men] walk free and continue their coercive control through the family courts.”
