Ritual Male Infant Genital Mutilation: J4MB Supports Men Do Complain Outside The Conservative Party Conference

On 4/5 October J4MB supporters travelled (mainly from afar) to the Conservative party conference in Manchester. The weather was glorious throughout the two days, predictably, and we were supporting the anti-MGM charity Men Do Complain http://mendocomplain.com. Collectively we handed out 2,000 leaflets - the (two-sided) design is here https://j4mb.files.wordpress.com/2015... - and we engaged in a huge number of conversations, almost all amicable, many with traditionally-minded Jews and Muslims.

Our thanks to Richard Duncker, who leads Men Do Complain, and did the video recording and editing, as well as Patrick Smyth, the organization's indefatigable organiser. Our thanks to them, and J4MB supporters, for putting so much effort and passion into the two days. I'm proud of everyone who made the effort to be there. It was a very fulfilling two days, and we look forward to making an even bigger splash at the Conservative party conferences in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019... leading up to the 2020 general election, when we'll be fielding candidates in the seats which were the Conservatives' top 20 marginal seats in the 2015 general election.
