    I used to give them a piece of my mind when they were outside BPAS in Bedord sq.

    Saw some ( not sure if its same group) outside Marie Stopes in West End (Cleveland street). They are out there praying with there rosaries. Its all Catholics in this country. They can fuck off. As I told them:).

    The ones in UK are part of "40 days for Life" that started in US of fucking A. Home of religious nutters.

    Here its dominated by Catholics:p. Not so in US.

    There whole thing is to set up long vigils and try to get places to close down. Its a form of intimidation. Fair enough its a free country. So I am free to go and tell these fuckers to fuck off. Id advise any one to do the same. They really do not like it. Its why they started filming people.

    I have shouted abuse at the ones outside Marie Stopes on Brixton Hill, with my son in his pushchair by my side. But it doesn't really deter them. I'd like to do something more if they are coming. Wonder how one finds out their location dates...

    Stope is a racist anti semite and anti Catholic according to them. Whilst I assume those in the vigil in Whitfield street are defenders of human rights.:rolleyes:

    From El-ahrairah first post they are extending there vigils from Whitfield street to Brixton. Looks like should start on 26th September.

    Address of Marie Stopes Brixton is 1a Raleigh Gardens Brixton Hill
    Cant wait. These people think they can have the success of the anti abortion movement in US. I hate them. This is not USA.

    Nor is this doing Catholics a lot of good either. I have friends from Poland where the Catholic church has a lot of influence. So Ive heard all about there malign influence on Polish society. Why some of my Polish friends like this country. Give the Catholic church an inch and they will take a mile.

    Never mind "not going Catholics a lot of good", it doesn't necessarily reflect well on Christianity as a whole either.

    Well done. They hate it.

    40 days for life conducts a peaceful, prayerful and legal vigil in London. The central point of our vigil is to pray for an end to abortion and show that that is a love in community that can help a woman to choose life for her unborn child. Since our campaign started in September 2010, we estimate that more than 30 women have chosen life for their unborn children as a result of our campaign through prayer and also through an offer of love, help and support during a difficult time.
    We have a statement of peace that sets the tone and ethos of our prayer vigil as a peaceful and prayerful event. Since our campaign started, we have received a very large number of insults and threats. :D At times, members of the vigil have filmed themselves in order to protect themselves from these threats. We do not encourage anybody to film members of the public during our campaign.

    Really? I do not have problems with Quakers for example . Catholic church in this country was and is socially conservative . So it can fuck off as far as Im concerned. This is not Catholic country.

    nah, they just tell you they'll pray for you.:rolleyes:

    I don't really get this though, there's regularly one or more loons outside the place on BH. Are they going to turn up mob handed?

    Depends on how forthright one is with ones opinions. I dont think they prayed for me.:D The more passers by who give them a hard time the better. This does not happen in USA. I think the level of abuse set them back a bit. Which is why they complain about it.

    They ask for it. I think it was a mistake of Stopes to go down the legal road. I think Stopes should ask people to tell them (peacefully and politely:rolleyes::p) why they think they are right wing religious bigots:cool: abortion should be on demand.


    If it is anything like Bedford sq (BPAS) was like then yes they will be "mob handed". Depending on time of day. Some days there were 8 of them with banners and models of foetus.

    The ones at Whitfield street (Stopes) , there now on regular basis, have increased. They put up religious pictures and kneel with there rosary beads praying etc whilst outside Stopes a couple of others offer "help" to those going in.

    Shouldn't it be abortion protest.
    anti abortion protest is the opposite.

    Also, someone should go beat these cunts with long shitty sticks

    How much 'abuse' can one give without getting arrested? Can one for instance tear up their posters?

    Every time I've been past on the bus and seen them there, there's usually several police standing with them, so if you do plan any sort of 'counter protest' or 'direct action' against them, do be careful.

    They could nick you for Criminal damage, or possibly violent disorder or a similar charge, depending on the circumstances.
    Would depend on whether the police wanted to arrest you or not really and exactly how it happened.
    If you just walked past, saw them went over, ripped a poster then walked on it'd be less likely than if there was a counter demo happening or you hung around shouting at them

    I used to live opposite there and i never saw any coppers standing there when they were out/marching up the hill..? They're a very difficult crowd to avoid walking up to and telling them they're the best advert for post-natal abortion in existence. Never got stopped doing so.

    We also have them around where i work - they stand outside marie stopes and hassle young lasses on their way in. As if they don't have enough on their minds. Utter utter cunts.

    Clarify the law here..

    Someone is walking down the road carrying an open can of red gloss paint. They are passing the religious cunt protest and trip over spilling the paint all over the cunts. Is there grounds for the paint carrier to be prosecuted?

    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1971/48/section/1
    Criminal Damage law:

    So if it was considered that you were being reckless by walking down the street with an open can of paint, then yes you could still be prosecuted for criminal damage, even if it was genuinely accidental. So you'd need to be able to show a good reason for the can to have been open at that point I think, or it could/would be considered criminal damage.

    So there would be a margin for doubt?

    In the situation you are describing I really think you'd need to come up with a pretty good reason why the can of paint was open, I wouldn't consider it usual to walk around the streets with an open can of paint.
    If, however, like OU is suggesting, you were coming back from a nearby shop with some flour, having decided not to take a bag for environmental reasons (after all, you have hands), heading home to make a cake, and fell over, covering them in flour, then I think there would be margin for doubt. It is hardly reckless to bring home food, and I would say rather responsible to do so without using bags wherever possible.

    I'm not sure I'd particularly want to stand up in court and claim I tripped accidentally though, lol :)

    Ready Brek and black poster paint would probably suffice. Just might be difficult explaining why you're carrying a bucketful in the street.

    i wouldn't be carrying a bucketful after i got to the demonstration

    What about throwing buckets of water on them? Or could that be considered assault?
