Today’s anti-MGM protest at the Conservative party conference

Our anti-MGM protest today was very successful. We handed out around 2,000 leaflets, and engaged in many productive discussions with delegates (and a number of MPs) – much like what we achieved in last year’s conference in Manchester. The most common topic of discussion was the illegality of MGM in the UK, which came as a surprise to many, who understandably – but incorrectly – assumed the commonality of the procedure reflected legality.

We’ve been taking video footage throughout on our bodycams, and The Forgotten Man (from The London Group) has taken some footage to give a sense of the activities. We’ll be posting footage after editing, in the next week or two.

We plan to be outside the ICC tomorrow morning, from around 9am. Please join us, and show your support for male minors being spared genital mutilation on religious or cultural grounds.

A few of the people who protested today, including a lady from Ulster who flew over for the protest, with her partner:


If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

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.

  • Well done to you all. In all honestly until this campaign I had given this no thought. If I’m at all representative it shows one needs such campaigns to make even the “obvious” obvious.

    • Thanks Nigel. Dozens of long-term MRAs have told me much the same thing over the past 2-3 years. The double standard of MGM / FGM is breathtaking.

  • Great job Mike & Co. !
    Sometimes the message needs to be hammered back over and over again for the slow to grasp, for the deaf to hear and for the blind to see.

  • Good job to you all, this is a very inspirational thing to see. I myself am intact and am very grateful about this, and it’s unfortunate to hear about men who inhumanely had this choice taken away from them in such an evidently barbaric practice. I really hope that one day within my lifetime this crime will be recognized in America for what it is and outlawed with a much condemnation as FGM is. Keep up the good work, you guys
