'We will not be silenced' Parents say they will continue to protest over LGBT lessons at Birmingham school

A group of parents who are against lessons about LGBT rights have said they 'will not be silenced' despite an injunction banning them from protesting outside of a school in Birmingham.

A High Court injunction which was won by Birmingham City Council was placed to stop protesting outside of Anderton Park Primary school in Sparkhill after concerns for the safety of staff and children.

The protesters say they will be appealing against the injunction.

Speaking today (Monday 3 June) in front of Birmingham City Council, Rosina Afsar whose name is on the injunction said they 'will not be silenced' as they're 'left with no option but to continue protesting'.

Protesters were met with objection from people living in the city who said 'we can't pick and choose our equality'.

The Chair of Governors at Rockwood School, Steve Ball said that resorting to demonstrations like these create anger and hostility between communities.

Protestors have been demonstrating outside the school gates for weeks.

Hundreds of students were kept home after some parents argued that the teachings are intolerant of their religious beliefs and aren't age appropriate.

Meanwhile, the school has said the protesters are spreading 'lies and misinformation' and that most don't even have children at the school.
