ManKind Show Solidarity – Demo May 9th
“ManKind” joined with other organisations to protest outside British Board of Film Classification against a film that denigrates men. The French film “BAISE-MOI” (‘Rape Me’) has been given a certificate by the British Board of Film Classification. In a Daily Mail article journalist Chris Tookey wonders why the BBFC have opened the flood gates to pornogtrahy. He says the film is described as portraying sex, rape, violence and sexual depravity, which he claims are “now all part of the British liberal feminists agenda”. The film depicts two female ‘nihilists’ search for sexual pleasure. They pick up an innocent man and anally rape him using a handgun. He is then executed by one of the girls with the gun still in his rectum. His executioners derive some kind of orgasmic thrill as they watch him die.
Not only were Media watch outraged but so too were church leades.r At the Demonstration in Soho Square, was the leader of “Mediawatch” and the spokesman on medical and ethical issues for “Islamic Concern”, Dr A Majid Katme.

BAN THE FILM:"BAISE-MOI” ……
AS IT HAS BEEN BANNED IN 23 COUNTRIES..
This French film is explicity OFFENSIVE to all public taste... It is full of immoral pervert sex,VIOLENCE, RAPE,SEXUAL DEPRAVITY.,,
No doubt it will have a bad influence especially on our children / our youth.
Psychological studies,social studies,health studies and criminal studies:have shown clearly the LINK to many violent and sexual films and the rape,sexual violence,and the sexual crimes in our society today, especially in the United States.
It was very IRRESPONSIBLE for the British Board of Film Classification to give this highly dangerous and immoral film:UK Release ( as 18 film) from 2002.
On behalf of the two million British Muslims, WE APPEAL strongly to the British Board of Film Classification TO BAN THIS FILM COMPLETELY, as it was banned in France and 22 other countries.
