Masked men try to prevent women from attending a lawful, public meeting to discuss the impact of proposed changes to the law on women's rights:

Yanbu, we are watching the rise of fascism.

It amazes me these 'class war' fantasists are in bed with the gender stereotyping ideology of the right-wing 1960s.

Very glad to see this has been posted where there is more traffic so everyone can see what's going on - shocked me I must say.

Where were the police? Why did they let a gang of masked young men get away with this?

Leaving a handy link to the petition smile
"Consult with women on proposals to enshrine 'gender identity' in law"

Bloody hell that's appalling.

Unbelievable. What happened next?

This is so violent and aggressive it is unreal.

Here is another (shorter) video of more shocking behaviour at the same event

Alarming stuff. How did those masked prats get in there in the first place?

CadyHeron Sun 22-Apr-18 02:02:47

WTF angry
YANBU, it's chilling, it really is.

CadyHeron Sun 22-Apr-18 02:10:12

Reading the comments, she got in eventually. Good.Glad to hear. Shouldn't have been trying to block though and stop.

There are some women supporting these thugs too. At least one, on one of Magdalena Berns' videos. Wtf are they thinking?

pamish Sun 22-Apr-18 02:29:23

The police said they could not take sides.

I would have thought this is (a) breach of peace and (b) against fire regs. Hope there will be comeback on them, video evidence like this will be handy.

SpareRibFem Sun 22-Apr-18 02:48:42

What do the police mean they couldn't take sides?

There's people trying to get into a venue for a meeting and there's masked thugs blocking the way by force. 😡

Maybe the police need to take a look at

Seems to be men and women there and neither violent nor aggressive.

Whether I think what they did was right or not, I think you should be truthful in your descriptions.

UpstartCrow Sun 22-Apr-18 03:01:44

@sentMai Its clear you haven't watched the video, especially the one posted by Magdalene.
Turn the volume down if your'e wearing headphones

Just watched it again. I don't think a hand-push is violent and aggressive.

sentMai Sun 22-Apr-18 03:06:57

Although the woman on the phone was clearly lying when she said "yes, the manager is trying to push them out of the door"

Just watched it again. I don't think a hand-push is violent and aggressive.

Im going to share this on facebook with your description OP if you dont mind.

Why the confused face. I understand there are levels of aggression and violence but I don't think a push of a camera / hand counts.
