Thornhill Clinic protest – a resounding success

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.

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.

    Great stuff and good luck with the next one. I’m sure if you do not warn them you will end up with some men (intended) in blue to assist in Thornhill as well.
