A DAD from Bromsgrove who campaigns to raise awareness of fathers’ rights camped outside the home of the president of the Family Division Sir James Munby on Mother’s Day.
Darren Lock from Stop the War on Dads said: “We are not going away because we only have another week of misery ahead with no change to the family courts.”
Darren said legal procedures had meant he lost his two-year battle to see his children, following the breakdown of a 12-year marriage.
He added Sir James Munby had admitted publicly the legal system was failing fathers but, despite that, had done nothing to rectify the situation.
As well as Darren and other campaigners from Stop the War on Dads, protestors from ‘New Fathers 4 Justice’ including one dressed as the Honey Monster surrounded Sir James’ thatched house in Wiltshere.
Neither Stop the War on Dads or the New Fathers for Justice are associated with Fathers4Justice UK.
“We have a legal system that is utterly out of touch with the way we live now in a world where mothers work and dads change nappies, push buggies and spend hours cuddling their children in exactly the same way that good mothers do.
“We must speak out about the injustice within the family courts and together we must unite to challenge the Governments policies to create the momentum necessary to bring about meaningful change,” said Mr Lock.
