Super heroes plea for equal rights for fathers

A HEANOR man is set to lead a campaign calling for fathers to the same access rights to their children as mothers.

Garry Roe organised a similar march on Father’s Day last year outside Ken Clarke, the Secretary of State for Justice’s home in West Bridgford, Nottingham, and has planned another for Father’s Day on Sunday. The protest was sparked after an interim report into a review of the Family Justice system was published in March, stating that “... no legislation should be introduced that creates or risks creating the perception that there is an assumed parental right to substantially shared or equal time for both parents.”

Fathers, dressed as super heroes, from action groups including Real Fathers 4 Justice and the original Fathers 4 Justice will attend the rally.

Mr Roe said: “The day before, I’ll be in the Market Square in Nottingham dressed as Batman handing out fliers.”
