Update on Birmingham protests.

Update on Birmingham protests.

Birmingham city council has applied to the court to have its injunction banning parental protests outside Anderton Park Primary School made permanent.  In other words, they want a permanent exclusion zone round Anderton where parents will be forbidden to gather – to protest, criticise staff or hand out leaflets (https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/oct/18/council-asks-judge-to-ban- lgbt-lessons-protesters-from-near-school).  We await the judgment.

Anderton is situated in a predominantly Muslim area and, unsurprisingly, has mainly Muslim pupils.  The protestors – in the main, parents – want the school to stop promoting and normalising LGBT behaviours and life-style choices to children as young as 3, and teaching them that gender is a matter of choice, not biology.  They say that such teaching is not just deeply confusing, but that it also goes against the basic tenets of their faith.
