Video of Mike Buchanan standing in the road during an anti-MGM protest in Parliament Square

Our thanks to AVfM for this.

To the few people who’ve criticised my actions, I say this. The MRM is a human rights movement, and the government is assaulting the human rights of men and boys in at least 20 areas, as explained in our 2015 general election manifesto. One of those areas is MGM, where the police / CPS don’t press charges against the mutilators, despite knowing MGM is illegal in the UK.

Decade after decade, the government refuses to engage with MRAs, most notably in the area of access rights following family breakdowns. Civil disobedience is an inevitable progression, and we look forward to standing with others who feel likewise, including fathers’ rights protesters.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    Mike I commend your leadership and passion. I believe your practical actions set a fantastic example for those MRAs who are active ‘keyboard warriors’ but haven’t yet taken the next step.

    Your determination and courage are inspirational. I tip my hat to YOU!

    • me too. I for one would be quite ignorant without the campaign and your championing of this issue.

      • And I have to say exactly right. The question is why no prosecutions? From the body charged with prosecutions in the public interest.

  • Civil disobedience is great for such an extreme human rights violation as this, though I think a lot of people’s main concern here is your safety (and that you’re not inconveniencing the right people).

    I’d much rather see people blocking the cars of an actual genital mutilators or anyone else responsible for these crimes and failing to prosecute them. Alternatively people could always chain themselves to the doors of an NHS unit where they’re abusing kids at taxpayer expense.

    Any manufacturers/distributors of the equipment used to tie down babies to be mutilated would make great targets for protest too.

    I think the protest was extremely brave and entirely justified though it would be significantly more powerful and would gain almost unanimous support if it were better targeted.
