any thoughts?Originally Posted by Fathers4JusticeA 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?
