UK: Kids Attending Fathers’ Rights Protests Could be Referred To Government Prevent De-Radicalisation Programme

Article here. Excerpt:

'Children who attend Fathers4Justice and anti-badger cull protests have been considered for the government’s anti-radicalisation programme, Prevent, set up to deter “violent extremism” and terrorism, an MP has claimed.

Conservative MP Lucy Allan said teachers are under increasing pressure to refer children to the Prevent Strategy, for reasons other than radical Islam, to please government inspectors.

Matt O’Connor, founder of Fathers4Justice, told Breitbart London: “A teachers job is to teach, not act as Orwellian thought police.

“We now live in a country where militant feminists are lauded in the mainstream media for protesting at the Women’s March, yet protesting dads campaigning for parental equality are linked to extremism.”
...
In one case, a 15-year-old schoolboy, who thought “Muslim women shouldn’t be allowed to wear the niqab”, was identified as a potential terrorist and put through Prevent’s most strict de-radicalisation programme, Channel.'
