TERFs protected by police lead Manchester Pride with Hate

Unbelievable. The same half dozen TERFs who hijacked Pride Parades in Britain last year did it again in 2019! And they did it with the Manchester Pride’s tacit approval and police escort.

It’s like the Parade officials don’t really give an actual fu#K. So expect these TERFs back next year and expect Manchester Parade officials to look the other way.

Imagine marching in the parade, smiling and waving, throwing beads when just ahead of you a group of extremists are holding signs for all intents and purpose a part of the parade which calls for your demise.

Again what the hell?

Manchester pride spun a statement which makes appear that the TERFs were firmly rejected early on.

The statement by Manchester Pride is clearly at odds with the recollections of a professional photographer and the observations of Transgender groups who marched behind the TERFs.

Susie Green, CEO of Mermaids UK, said: “We were delighted to be asked to be a part of this year’s march, alongside Sparkle and L-with-the-T. Our families, children and young people gathered to take part, and the march was amazing, emotional and empowering.

“It was with great sadness that we then discovered that, only 13 spaces in front of us, the same circumstances that happened in London in 2018 were played out in Manchester on Saturday.

“We are so disappointed that this was allowed to happen and dismayed that it was so close to our vulnerable service users and their families. To learn that they were escorted and allowed to hand out offensive materials that discriminate against trans people is incredibly disheartening.”

The protestors also handed out leaflets claiming that “trans-activism erases lesbians” and citing support from other anti-trans campaigns, including ReSistersUnited, whose regional group Lancashire ReSisters participated in the demonstration.
