Hats off to Dads Defending Daughters who have called off their proposed demonstration in Parliament square, which was set to take place this afternoon. After a meeting last night, the organisers, felt that the media would have been outraged at the taxi trade for protesting at this sad time.
Dads Defending Daughters have today put out this statement:
As some of you were aware, Dads Defending Daughters was planning a peaceful protest on all four sides of Parliament Square today (Friday).
With sincere respect to the family of murdered Labour MP Jo Cox, and with heartfelt condolences to her two young children, we felt it would be insensitive to stage a protest during this time of national mourning.
The unofficial gathering is officially off.
RIP Jo Cox
