The British political party Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them outlined in its last general election manifesto 20 areas where the human rights of men and boys are assaulted by the actions and inactions of the state, almost always to privilege women and girls. Girls, including unborn girls, are – in common with boys – affected by the issues in bold text:
- Foetal Alcohol Effects/Syndrome
- Male Genital Mutilation
- Educational Failure
- Workplace Disenfranchisement
- Reproductive Rights
- Parental Alienation
- Domestic Violence
- Sexual Abuse
- Armed Forces Veterans’ Health Issues
- Criminal Justice Discrimination
- Paternity Fraud
- Anonymity for Suspected Sexual Offenders
- False Allegations
- Healthcare Discrimination
- Lack of Political Representation
- Family Court Bias/Corruption
Today we would add at least four more:
- Workplace discrimination
- Brain injury from compulsory contact sports
- Denial of speaking platforms
Legions of people around the world have witnessed human rights assaults in these areas (and more) first-hand – for example, women being advised to make false accusations of domestic violence or sexual offences for personal advantage and/or financial gain – and we want a considerable number of “whistleblowers” to provide videos for this conference.
We understand that you might have concerns about being identified, so we’re willing to do whatever is necessary to mask your identity. You could use a false name, and we could pixellate your face and/or mask your voice, maybe having someone read out your script, if necessary (as we did for a number of whistleblowers at ICMI20). Whatever it takes for you to feel confident you cannot be identified.
In the first instance please email Mike Buchanan (email@example.com) with basic details on what you’d like to speak about.
