Hundreds of angry fathers dressed in black and brandishing purple flags have staged a demonstration at the High Court in London as part of a Fathers’ Day protest against their treatment at the hands of Family Division judges. Between 60 and 70 men made it past security guards on Friday (13 June) to occupy the Family Court building itself, while the protesters claim that up to 500 others staged a non-violent protest outside. The court is believed to have been in session at the time and, although the police were called, no arrests were made. Organised by civil rights group Fathers 4 Justice, the protest aims to “open up” the family courts, amid claims that it operates “like an East European Communist dictatorship”.
