[Note added 25.4.19: Along with Elizabeth Hobson, Jordan Holbrook, and others, I’ll be having lunch at The Regal, a JD Wetherspoon establishment in Cambridge, from 1:00 p.m. on 24 May, five hours before the talks are scheduled to start. We’ll stay there as long as we can, and will return there after the talks. We invite you to join us, whether or not you’ll be attending the talks.]
[Note added 1.5.19: (Free) tickets for this event can be ordered through Eventbrite, here. Registration starts at 5:00 pm.

I am pleased to announce a new strategy for J4MB, engaging with university students and academics, particularly those studying or teaching subjects close to our mission, such as Politics and History. Both groups could benefit greatly from being better informed about men’s issues and feminism. Universities are the sources of much of the indoctrination of young adults who later (in positions of power and influence) assault the human rights of men and boys – and by extension, women and girls – in so many areas, including the 20 areas explored in our last election manifesto. The areas include:
Denial of access to children
Armed forces veterans’ mental health
Suicide (#1 cause of death of men under 45 in the UK, in all age brackets)
Criminal justice system
Anonymity for suspected sexual offenders
In coming weeks and months we’ll be announcing a series of talks at universities, with one or two high-profile Men’s Rights Activists (MRAs), anti-feminists, and others, speaking at each event.
The first event will be held at one of the most prestigious seats of learning in the world, the University of Cambridge. My talk title will be, “Equal Rights for Men and Women”. The talk title is the same as that of the talk I gave at last year’s fourth International Conference on Men’s Issues – here (video, 29:31) – but the content will be very different.
Elizabeth Hobson, our Director of Communications, will be talking before me, on “The History of Feminism”. Elizabeth is currently studying for a BA in History and Politics at the Open University,
The venue for our talks will be the Alison Richard Building, the date 24 May. We do not imply an affiliation with the University of Cambridge or any of its departments.
Both Elizabeth and I will have Q&A sessions, and the event will be over 18:00 – 20:00. Registration will take place over 17:00 – 17:55. Refreshments will not be provided.
This new strategy will add substantially to our costs, so if you’re not already a donor or party member, perhaps now is the time to start? Details below.
If everyone who read this gave us £5.00 – or even better, £5.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. £5.00 monthly would entitle you to Bronze party membership, details here. Benefits include a dedicated and signed book by Mike Buchanan. Click below to make a difference. Thanks.
