The Metropolitan Police are facing legal action after they refused to guard a major protest by the mothers against in cost of care for children in central London, a few weeks before the scheduled place.

Activists accused the Metropolitan of “again trying to prevent women from the organization, six months after the trial found it violated the rights of women trying to organize after murder of Sara Everard.

Joely Brearley, Founder of Pregnant and then fucked up, said group was shocked that the police refused on September 27 to close the roads and support march, after similar protests had passed, including one organized by the TUC event in june and march in 2018 Wildlife Conservation Organized by Conservationist Chris Packham.

Brearley said, group informed of this is plans in May and asked for meeting, but got his decision just four weeks before event was scheduled to take place.

“Once again The Metropolitan Police are trying to prevent women from the organization,” she said. “There is no point in them issue road closures and ensure police presence for march TUK in June to then deny the same when it women who want their voices must be heard. It’s sexist, there’s no doubt about it. We are furious.”

In March, the Supreme Court ruled that the Met violated the rights of organizers of scheduled vigil for Everard in in way he did what he planned event, in a decision proclaimed a “victory for women”. One woman who was arrested and charged after the visit filed a civil suit against in force which has also faced contradictions over alleged misogyny and was placed in special measures in June over a series of limitations.

Lawyers for in group sent a preliminary letter to Inspector Emma Dickinson, head of Metropolitan public order planning department requiring it decision be canceled – arguing that by law he cannot entrust traffic control. The organizers said Westminster city advice will not issue temporary traffic rules (WTO) for protest as responsibility for public the protests rested with police.

“Women are tired. They’ve had enough of ignored by this government. it’s a responsibility of police to support peaceful protest, but instead they block it. It’s no longer a democracy that works for women. We are being further harassed and silenced,” Brearley said.
