A page on crowdfunding website GoFundMe which was launched in the summer by one of the LGBT-lessons protesters outside Birmingham’s Anderton Park primary school has been taken down.
GoFundMe took down the page this morning, commenting: “We have removed this page as it violates our terms of service”.
The page was launched in June by Shakeel Afsar in an attempt to raise cash to cover the protesters’ legal fees as they fought against a high court injunction stopping them from demonstrating outside Anderton Park.
At the time of its shutdown, the crowdfunding page had raised less than a third of its £30,000 target figure.
The page was taken down after the Guardian newspaper contacted GoFundMe for comment. Humanists UK - a national charity working on behalf of non-religious people - had twice demanded the page be removed but GoFundMe had taken no action.
The protesters have been targeting Anderton Park and another Birmingham school, Parkfield, since the spring, as they believe both schools’ lessons about LGBT relationships are not appropriate for primary-school-aged children.
The protesters, predominantly Muslim parents, also feel that the lessons conflict with their faith.
