UK: First protests against LGBT equality teaching at primary school after injunction

Protesters campaigning against LGBT equality teaching in a primary school in England have held their first demonstration since a court-backed exclusion zone came into force.

Around 40 people, some holding banners, gathered outside the zone on an area of grass around 100 metres from Birmingham’s Anderton Park Primary School, which has seen a string of protests directly outside its main entrance.

An interim High Court injunction secured by Birmingham City Council on Friday last week has banned demonstrations taking place within a specified area covering neighbouring roads.The court order bars those objecting to use of particular relationship education materials from protesting inside the zone.

Speaking to the crowd at the latest demonstration on Friday afternoon, main organiser Shakeel Afsar said a silent protest would be held at a court hearing to challenge the order on Monday.
