Gender-critical activists and counter-protesters clashed in Edinburgh in a dispute over transgender rights. Let Women Speak (LWS), an organisation described by supporters as a “gender-critical feminist” campaign, led a rally outside the Royal Scottish Academy in the Scottish capital on Saturday. The rally, which began at 1pm, was led by Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull, sometimes known as Posie Parker. Keen-Minshull said her purpose was to “test the law” on the march to see how the police would handle gender-critical chants in light of Scotland’s new hate crime legislation, the Telegraph reported. The group was met by opposition from various pro-transgender groups, including Cabaret Against the Hate Speech (CAHS), who led the counter-protest.
