London, England, Jul 24, 2018 / 18:20 pm
A British charity that provides women with alternatives to abortion was ejected from the Lambeth Country Show after a local government official said the group had misrepresented itself in its application for a booth at the fair.
Life, a non-sectarian charity which provides assistance to women and children, exhibited information about fetal development and support available to women in crisis pregnancies from a booth at the country show- a fair- on July 21. When volunteers and staff arrived the next morning, they say they found their stall dismantled and their property removed from the site.
The annual event was held in Brockwell Park, south London, and was attended by approximately 150,000 people over the course of the weekend.
Event organizers distanced themselves from the eviction, saying that the decision was taken by Lambeth Council, the local government body sponsoring the event. A statement released by Life said that they were not contacted about the decision or offered an explanation for it.
