Reform Family Courts

Kensington Gardens, London. Sat 22 Apr 2017



 One of the organisers explains why we cannot mention the name of the woman the protest was organised to support

 

 People, including Sir Benjamin Slade, listen to the speaker

 A woman talks about the case of a friend whose name cannot be mentioned beacuse of a family court ruling

 Several of those at the protest had stories to tell of secret decisions, gagging orders and family court decisions
that had left their children with people who had abused them and other stories

 Sir Benjamin Slade tells the story of his fight to help a former employee to get his children back - they had been

 taken away by social services because the parents had mildly unusual behaviour which had not harmed their children.

 The Women's Coalition 'Fighting for the Right to Keep and Protect our Children' have prepared a report for the UN

 

 

 One young mother collapsed and died in court from stress after her children were taken from her

 

 

 'Court allows my abuser to use our child to continue to abuse & control both of us!'
    
  

 

 

 
    
  

 

 Sir Benjamin Slade poses with campaigners and victims of family courts

 

 

 

 THe speeches continue
