    Religious Schools full stop.
    Community services being run by religious organisations.
    The religious anti abortion lobby.
    Religious misinformation on contraception and AIDS.
    Religious influence on the BMA on the health care of others.

    Religiously motivated male circumcision.
    The right to die with dignity.
    The abuse of women and children falsely accused of witchcraft.
    The fleecing of their flock by prosperous gospel churches.
    Showing solidarity with the rest of the world where individuals and groups are struggling to achieve basic human rights.
    Death threaths against Ex Muslims living in Europe.
    Freedom of speech

    We also march to celebrate success with Gay and Humanist Marriage in the UK.
