Fathers 4 Justice protest at Harriet Harman’s home

June 8, 2008

The Fathers 4 justice have targeted Harriet Harman’s home for a protest today, climbing onto her roof dressed as super heroes.

Forty-Six year old Mark Harris and Forty-One year old Jolly Stanesby, both from Plymouth, climbed up onto the roof dressed as Captain Conception and Cash Gordon, armed with a banner that read: “A father is for life, not just conception”. The Fathers 4 Justice group has been campaigning for fathers rights in the UK.

Both Harriet Harman and her husband, Jack Dromey, are said to be inside the house.

Fathers 4 Justice campaigner Mark Harris said:

All we did was push open the gate which wasn’t even locked, put a ladder up and climbed up.

In this time of heightened terror alerts, I can’t believe Harriet Harman has such lax security. My house is more secure than this.

Mark O’Connor is the founder of Fathers 4 Justice, and he promises that this is just the first of many protests lined up over the coming weeks, leading up to Father’s Day.

This is the beginning of a series of protests leading up to Fathers’ Day.

We’ve got absolutely nowhere in terms of dialogue with the Government and if anything the situation for fathers is infinitely worse.

Politicians don’t want to tackle the elephant in the room, fatherhood, for fear of upsetting single mothers.

They say you can abandon your children tomorrow if you pay.

The protesters say they will remain on the roof of Harriet Harman’s home until she reads Mr Harris’ book, entitled ‘Family Court Hell’ According to Mr O’Connor they have enough supplies with them to stay up on the roof for a week.

The group has been famed for their highly publicised stunts over the last few years. In 2004 they threw condoms filled with flour at Prime Minister Tony Blair, and one of their group climbed into a ledge of Buckingham Palace dressed as Batman. They’ve also invaded a live broadcast of the lottery draw on BBC 1.

Mr O’Connor says there is more to come from the Fathers 4 Justice, and the CSA are being targeted.

There will be an official protest in Bristol, when we’ll be targeting the Child Support Agency (CSA) in a way which hasn’t been seen before.

We’ll also be revisiting many of our older protests.

According to Scotland Yard:

Officers are currently in attendance at the location and are speaking to the men.

CSAhell.com offers its full support to the two men, and hope they manage to stick it out until they get the results they want.
