Special Announcement – Assaulted and refused service at a pub for supporting women’s rights
Last year, a group of 23 people – female, male, lesbian, gay, straight, young and old, from all over the UK and the Republic of Ireland were refused service in a Northern Irish bar, Robinson’s Bar, Belfast, because of their legally-protected beliefs about women’s rights.
As well as being refused service, an older gay man who was part of our group was violently assaulted by a terrifying attack by a member of staff.
The group are crowdfunding to pay the legal fees to take this case to court in Belfast, and uphold the principle that it is illegal to discriminate against people for holding gender critical beliefs and views that support the rights of women, girls and LGB (Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual) people.
What happened is unlawful. It is discrimination. And it sets a dangerous precedent.
No woman or man should ever be discriminated against because they believe in women’s sex-based rights and that biological sex is real, immutable, and important in policy and in law.
