The Fathers4Justice Group in England has been accused in a program aired by ITV in that country of mounting a plot to black out British Television screens. The group was created in 2002 when a handful of men banded together after meeting through support groups and becoming disillusioned with their failure to change what they claim are fundamental inequalities in the family court system. They have climbed on ledges of Buckingham Palace and clambered up York Minster, Tower Bridge and the London Eye to capture headlines while dressed as fictional superheroes. One member of the group handcuffed himself to Margaret Hodge, the children's minister, last November. It took police 20 minutes to free the minister. The group accused the film makers of the documentary that suggested the plot of distorting the truth and said it would complain to ITV. Source. Paul Kelbie, The Independent, independent.co.uk.
