    News from 17th July

    Quote Originally Posted by Fathers4Justice
    A demonstration was staged today outside Harrow crown court after M25 protester Geoff Hibbert was jailed for six months.

    After already spending a month on remand in Wormwoods Scrubs Geoff is expected to be incarcerated for at least another ten weeks before becoming eligible for early release, his appeal has been lodged and is ongoing.

    Judge Alan Greenwood drew gasps from the gallery as he concluded that these type of protests were not justified as there is; "no problem with family law" and that the sentence was a "deterrent" to future protests.

    If you are a UK citizen you now have no rights to carry out a peaceful protest under this police state, sponsored by a failing Labour government who have continued to erode our civil liberties with rafts of new legislation aimed at silencing those who dare to question.

    In our criminal courts we regularly see shoplifters, burglers, muggers and fraudsters walk free or receive a token slap on the wrist despite having previous criminal records.

    Yet here we see a hard-working peaceful father, who had no previous police record, criminalised and jailed for his first offence.

    Geoff has spent over fifty thousand pounds in legal fees trying to secure a relationship with his daughter, he has not seen her for around two years.

    He simply wished to highlight the injustice he encountered by staging a peaceful protest - after fully exploring every other legal avenue what other option was available to him?
    any thoughts?

    Too harsh on him by far, the guy only wants his rights as a father at the end of the day.

    ATEOTD, he only wanted to bring to light the fight some dads have on their hands to see their children

    Absolutly sickening, it should never have come to that in the first place, he's obviously a devoted dad so why is he being stopped from seeing his daughter?

    Could be underlying reasons, but even still some fathers with blatent reason not to have contact do.

    A deterrent indeed.

    What's interesting is that this Judge thinks this will act as a deterrent. What he doesn't understand is that's he's simply adding fuel to the fire.

    There's quite a lot more to come by all accounts.

    Its so sad that the Legal System thinks one rule should apply to all. Every single case has a different story when it comes to access to children. Quite simply the system is not working as it is but quite what the answer is i dont know....!? Jx
