(Newser) – Two dads in superhero getups climbed on a British lawmaker's roof today to demand their rights, the AP reports. A fathers' group staged the protest to promote paternal access rights, after talks with 10 Downing St. broke down. “We are now resuming a full-scale campaign of direct action,” said the founder of Fathers 4 Justice. "F4J is now the last line in the defense of fatherhood.”
