Breaking news from the 8BitDad news wire: the UK dad group “New Fathers 4 Justice” are arranging a rally in front of British Secretary of State for Justice Kenneth Clarke’s house. The rally is set for Saturday, January 28 – which is in 24 hours or less, depending on which side of the pond you’re on.
New Fathers 4 Justice are known for rallying in favor of father’s rights – and usually, their protests consist of wearing superhero costumes and climbing to the roof of someone’s office. This time around, costumes are encouraged, and protestors are to bring purple flags, whistles, drums and whatever “loudhailers” are. Us yanks assume it’s a cross between a bullhorn and an inhaler. More deets after the hop.
There’s an online backlash taking place today, Friday, January 27th from 9-10pm EST to protest a Georgia advertising campaign. Strong4Life has purchased billboard ads all over the State of Georgia, hoping to provide a “wake-up call” to Georgian parents about how many children are obese. These ads are a bit controversial and actually to do more harm to children than good.
