British Lawmaker Suspended After Footage Shows Him Grabbing Woman By Her Neck And Dragging Her Out Of A Room
A British lawmaker was suspended for grabbing a woman by the neck and physically forcing her out of a government black tie event Thursday.
Foreign Office Minister Mark Field, of Britain’s Conservative Party, was suspended from his position Friday by the Prime Minister’s office for his use of force on a female protester during a dinner at the Mansion House, according to The Associated Press.
Finance Minister Philip Hammond was addressing a group of foreign industry executives at the gala when several female climate activists wearing red dresses and sashes reading “Climate Change Emergency” stormed into the venue, interrupting the speech. One could be seen reading aloud from a sheet of paper as she entered the room.
When one of the activists, Janet Barker, approached Field’s side of the table, he rose from his chair and aggressively confronted her.
