My interpretation for what it is worth is that MSE Faye wasn't endorsing WASPI but was simply informing those that read the Pensions forum of WASPIs aims and about the event.

MSE supports WASPI. It says it in most articles MSE make about WASPI. Including this one.

I'm ashamed to be in the group of women that WASPI say they are representing. Posted by Pollycat
ome years ago I was mildly awre that some females felt that they had been dealt a bad deal because of the speed of change of their retirement dates and on the basis of their feelings and perhaps because I'm an old-fashioned bloke and they were females, I felt sympathy.
What I did feel however was extremely uncomfortable about the way that other objectors to WASPIs aims resorted to personal attacks about WASPI proponents.

Have you seen how the WASPI women treat people who present the counter argument? They make the SNP cybernats look tame.
A Government minister claims she has been “bullied, insulted and vilified” by a women’spensions campaign group.
The claim was made by Pensions Minister and Tory peer Ros Altmann, who said the “personal” attacks had been “hurtful, hateful” and “very, very distressing”.
Baroness Altmann told the Telegraph that she has faced a sustained hate campaign from the Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) campaign since she became a minister in the Department of Work and Pensions last year.
She said she was the victim of “incessant tweets and emails, trolling, insults and many swear words” after the campaign gave out her email address to thousands of their angry supporters.
“These women have emailed me horrid and vile messages, such as hoping I get struck down with cancer, that I’m a traitor, a turncoat and that I’ve sold my soul to the devil.”

I'm just very confused as to what WASPI actually want.
The Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) campaign group was formed to demand transitional arrangements including a 'bridging pension' for those caught out by the changes.
