High profile court cases like Andrew Bolt’s, crazy proposed laws like Nicola Roxon’s and outrageous plans to stifle dissent like Stephen Conroy’s prove that freedom of speech is under threat in Australia.
Over the last year the Institute of Public Affairs has been conducting a nationwide Freedom of Speech Tour. So far we’ve visited Hobart, Launceston and Brisbane.
Next month we’re continuing the tour to Adelaide, Perth and Sydney.
Come along and hear what you can do to help defend free speech. IPA staff Chris Berg, Simon Breheny and John Roskam will be joined by very special guest speakers in each city. And every attendee gets a free copy of Chris Berg’s book, In Defence of Freedom of Speech: From Ancient Greece to Andrew Bolt.
The details of the events are:
- Perth: Wednesday 11 September, 5.00pm for 5.30pm – 7.00pm, Mercure Perth, 10 Irwin Street. Featuring special guest Nick Cater, author of The Lucky Culture and columnist with The Australian. RSVP here.
- Adelaide: Thursday 12 September, 5.00pm for 5.30pm – 7.00pm Mercure Grosvenor, 125 North Terrace, Adelaide. Featuring special guest Nick Cater, author of The Lucky Culture and columnist with The Australian. RSVP here.
