This afternoon, we were part of the largest-ever protest against non-therapeutic circumcision of male minors (male genital mutilation, ‘MGM’) in the UK, outside the leading private male genital mutilation clinic in the UK – Thornhill Clinic, Luton. This photo was taken towards the end of the protest, and a number of protesters had left by this point, but it should give you a sense of the scale of the protest. We put a lot of effort into protesting with placards on the Dunstable Road, at the entrance of Thornhill Street, and we were delighted at the support we received from passing pedestrians and drivers.
We look forward to returning to protest outside the Thornhill Clinic before long, with a key difference. In future, we won’t be informing the clinic in advance about the timing of our protests.
