Elizabeth Hobson’s last blog piece on this issue, published eight days before yesterday’s events, has details including all the speakers at the conference – here. William Collins was the keynote speaker, other high-profile speakers included John Waters, Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad), and Alison Tieman.
It was the third consecutive annual event, always held on a Sunday on or close to International Men’s Day, and definitely the best yet, all agreed. My thanks to Elizabeth and Natty for all their hard work in relation to both the march and the conference (the latter lasted from 3pm to near midnight), and the Save Indian Family Foundation (SIFF) for their input to the march in particlar.
The indefatigable Ewan Jones was taking plenty of video footage of the march, and we look forward to watching it in due course. A particular highlight was the brilliant idea – I don’t know whose it was – to protest and chant next to the Millicent Fawcett status in Parliament Square, which I know Ewan filmed. That should be a real treat to watch.
The award-winning director Anthony J Corniche III – “Tom” – filmed all the talks and we look forward to them being published in due course.
