Trans-rights activists have been accused of intimidating women attending a feminist event at the Labor Party Conference after images of protesters banging on windows and yelling at attendees.
The event, held on Monday by the Woman & Place 39 (WPUK) campaign group, was crashed by the Queer AF activist group who claimed that the meeting spread transphobia.

Mrs. Bindel tweeted: & # 39; Standing outside this location where # WPUKLab19 met to discuss women's rights based on women, a load of trans-activist women's histles yelling, shouting, and slapping the window while the police did absolutely nothing. & # 39;
At a certain moment a woman who takes the images walks along the side of the building and shows the protesters angrily at those present at the event.
Ali Ceesay, a steward for the meeting, told MailOnline: & There were more than 100 demonstrators shouting, shouting and blocking people's entrances. A young woman had a full panic attack in the building. It was frightening.
& # 39; They hit windows, it was horrible and the police didn't stop them.
& # 39; The police were joking. We also had some of our attendees throwing liquid in their faces. It felt very much like we were under siege, & she said.
Queer AF campaigners told it Brighton Argus of their planned demonstration, claiming that WPUK had appropriated feminism and & # 39; used the Labor Party conference to spread a transphobic message & # 39 ;.
Mrs. Ceesay defended those allegations and said: “According to Equality 2010, we have several protected features in the law. One is sex. It is that law that gives women sex-based rights that protects us.

& # 39; There is a push in some of the more extreme LGBT communities to replace sex with a looser definition of gender identity. What this means is that we lose our rights under this nefarious and indefinable concept of gender identity – and therefore we lose our services to women only. & # 39;
The conflict also extends to whether & # 39; gender neutral & # 39; toilets are acceptable or that they deny biological women their right to private space. WPUK prefers the term & # 39; mixed sex & # 39; toilets on their website.
Queen AF denied allegations of harassment in one Facebook message on Tuesday.
A statement read: & # 39; On Monday, September 23, the WPUK hate group attempted to hold a conference in Brighton to spread more hate speech about our trans and sex workers brothers and sisters.
& # 39; We assisted the community in raising awareness of the corrupted nature of the group during the TWT and labor conference. At 5 p.m., about 200 people gathered for speeches, music, and singing in the old steine while we waited for the site to be released.
& # 39; The demo then marched to the location to make noise outside the building. The building was heavily secured with 3 private security at the main entrance and a maximum of four riot carts worth the police around the building.
& # 39; WPUK members were rude and aggressive to the small group of protesters who handed out counter-flyers in the queue while waiting for the march to arrive. & # 39;
MailOnline has contacted the Sussex police for comments on allegations that they have allowed the harassment of WPUK participants in the event, and Queer AF about allegations of harassment by their demonstrators.
