    Action alert in London

    Gender Studies Lawsuit in London seeks MRAs for Fighting Fund Stall

    A pro-equality MRA in London is bringing a damages claim against an elite university's Gender department, for discriminating against him, and men in general, during a taught degree.
    The case already has the support of a specialist lawyer and barrister, but requires funding.
    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to join us, at an awareness-raising stall, which will be appearing on campuses around Central London.
    Broadsheet newspapers have expressed an interest in covering the story, so we can expect the campaign to be high profile.
    Interaction with the public will give MRA volunteers a great opportunity to perfect their stand up debating and persuasion skills, across the FULL range of men's rights issues.
    All interested in volunteering, should contact mrastandup-at-hotmail.com for more details.
    This case is rock solid, so now is the time for up and coming MRAs to make a move.

    Please contact mrastandup@hotmail.com for more details, and spread the word to any London-based MRAs you know.

    Do we have a date set for this yet?

    We have a four month period in which to raise the money, so can choose where and when we set up the stall(s) to fit in with schedules.

    Too bad I am not on the same side of the lake. I think this is a very interesting idea for activism activities and male University students over here would do well to emulate it.
    Do not ever suppose that a small group of people can never change the world. INDEED it is the only thing that ever has.

    What date, what location, how much money is required, who is the barrister?

    You're being very vague with all the details and this makes it difficult to support it.

    Re: Action alert in London

    I do not want to give away specifics here at this point, for legal and strategic reasons. Please email me with any questions you have, at mrastandup@hotmail.com.
    Now is the time to show your potential availability, so you can collaborate on developing or fine-tuning the campaign's message if you wish.

    Thanks to all those showing their support from around the world.

    Please ask any London MRAs you know to email for more details!

    Re: Action alert in London

    I believe members should hold off sending any details on this until I hear further from an email I sent, this may be some attempt to identify members/be a nuisance or it may be genuine.

    I sent an email requesting some information on this action or a number to contact the person instead I very quickly received back an email asking for a number. I gave a number but havenít heard back. While that was only yesterday evening so there is still plenty of time Iíve decided to post an early warning to avoid other members giving over any details and will gladly post an apology if this does turn out to be genuine.

    All in all it seems a little optimistic that we would have a specialist lawyer and barrister lined up to take a case against an elite University in Londonís gender department for discrimination during a thought degree.

    The poster is a very tight (for legal and strategic reasons???) with the details and has only made 3 posts.
    I did a quick check on the IP address of the email on an online site and this suggests the origin is the US of course the language used also suggests the poster is from the US, donít think we have ďgender departmentsĒ and ďthough degreesĒ here. Maybe someone can check the IP of the posts above?

    Iíve posted this as soon as possible to avoid other MRAís giving their details and will gladly post an apology if I do hear from the poster.

    Re: Action alert in London

    the term "elite" tends to be used more in the US than the UK too, though that email is the same as for the comedy writing group. Was that event legit or not?

    Re: Action alert in London

    I had a long phone call with Tom, and had excellent discussion on his plans for this project.
    For anyone in the London area this would be an excellent project to get involved in, what ever your slant in MRA whether specifically fatherís rights, false accusations or the general assumed second class nature of men in society.

    Such a course can be leveraged for menís rights in general:

    The status and advertising of having a menís issues course in a prestigious university would be great, it recognises there is a problem in menís issues and menís rights in general, it legitimises the subject in societyís mind.

    Members of that department with have a certain status which will help them get on TV and radio, something which other activists donít get no matter how good they are.

    All menís issues can be raised in such a course.

    It reaches intelligent young men before they have been fully brow beaten by society, before theyíve been conditioned to accept that to think of menís issues is misogynist or petty. So maybe some of the brightest of the next generation will be confident in sticking up for themselves.

    Please get involved if you can!!
