Good Friday Crucifixion Stunt

Fathers' rights campaigners, Simon and Paul, who climbed 60ft up the Westminster Abbey to stage a protest were arrested and have now been released from Charing Cross Police Station.

They carried up a dummy on a cross to signify that fathers are being "crucified" with unequal treatment in the UK courts over access to children.

The men, aged 30 and 48 and from the north-east of England. The older man is suffering from a terminal illness. He hasn't seen his child in four years, despite having numerous contact orders which are just flouted time and time again.

The fathers finally came down after Anne Widdecome, a supporter of Fathers' rights to equal parenting, asked them to. Widdecome made the offer and gave her word that within the next two weeks she would speak publicly on camera of her support for the right of fathers to be equal parents.

Simon and Paul are due to appear at Bow Street Magistrates court next Friday 21st April at 10am, lets show them our support.
