Canadian businessman and Muslim activist Kamel El-Cheikh has organized a “1 Million March 4 Children” on Wednesday, September 20, to protest schools indoctrinating and sexualizing children with LGBT ideology. Protestors have also planned a Canada-wide school walkout on that day.

The Post Millennial, a conservative Canadian news outlet, reported on the event, adding that El-Cheikh’s “goal is to bring together a million Canadians of all faiths from coast to coast.”

A video about the event explains:

Parents have had enough of secrets, exclusion in the name of inclusion, blatant overreach by schools, co-parenting with our governments, sexually explicit materials in schools, accusations of hate and abuse, reprimand for speaking the truth … We will stand up for our kids. #Leave Our Kids Alone.

The Post Millennial said of the protest organizer:

Although he has rarely been in the media spotlight as a businessman, El-Cheikh has become a prominent protest organizer in the last months as he has led groups of Muslims and Christians in Ottawa who are opposed to children being told they can change their gender without telling their parents and to pornographic literature used in sex education.

Some of the groups promoting the event include Blueprint for Canada, Parents Rights Coalition of Canada, Citizen Media News, Mama Bears Project and Save Canada.

Josh Alexander is the founder of Save Canada and the youth leader for the event.

You may know him as the Canadian teen who was suspended from St. Joseph Catholic High School in Renfrew, Ontario, for saying in class that there are two sexes, calling male breastfeeding pedophilia, and quoting Mark 10:6, where Jesus says, “But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female’” (ESV).

Alexander will be at the national march, at Parliament Hill, in Ottawa, at the Canadian Capitol. But dozens of protests and marches are being held in cities across the country, from Whitehorse, Yukon to St. John’s Newfoundland, and from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, to Montreal, Quebec.

The protest has not gone unnoticed, and groups that support teaching sexualized, confusing material to children are planning counter-protests. The Western Standard reported:

The Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) is strategizing on how to counteract the million-person march Wednesday.

On September 11, OFL President Patty Coates sent an email to the OFL executive board, executive council, union heads, committees, coalitions, and community partners.

Its notice read, “Urgent Action Required: Rapid Response to September 20th Canada-Wide (anti-sexual minority) Protests.”

“Sexual minority” is an identity label for those who don’t think of themselves as male or female or who are sexually attracted to the same sex or other so-called “genders.”

And, of course, those protestors aren’t “anti-sexual minority,” they just don’t want their children exposed to age-inappropriate, sexualized materials in schools.

Another group, Community Solidarity Ottawa, is also planning a counterprotest:

This coming Wednesday, September 20th, anti-2SLGBTQIA+ activists plan to rally on Parliament Hill as well as in a number of cities across the country for a so-called “Million Person March.” While they claim to be in support of “parental rights,” this is nothing more than yet another anti-2SLGBTQIA+ hate rally.

Many of the people behind this hateful protest are familiar faces from previous anti-2SLGBTQIA+ mobilizaions in Ottawa – homophobic and transphobic activist Kamel El-Cheikh, anti-2SLGBTQIA+ hate group Save Canada, as well as the usual gathering of homophobic convoy activists and other far-right networks [sic].

2SLGBTQIA+” is the Canadian government’s approved initialism that stands for “Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and additional sexually and gender diverse people in Canada.” The “additional sexually and gender diverse people in Canada” are all covered by the plus sign.

Again, this is not about “hate” or “far right” politics, it’s about preserving children’s innocence by not introducing them to LGBT ideology. Children are not equipped to bear the weight of adult sexuality – especially broken and confusing adult sexuality – and exposing them to these sexual concepts and images is damaging and harmful.

El-Cheikh is hoping that the event will have an impact, and that many Canadians will join together in the march. He said:

I am optimistic – absolutely. You know, if [there’s] one thing that’s going to inspire Canadians from coast to coast to go down and protest, it’s the kids and their innocence, and it’s families.
