I’ve been invited to speak briefly on behalf of NO2ID at the alternative Magna Carta festival that is taking place in London this Saturday. It should be an interesting event for anyone who is like myself interested in civil liberties issues! The blurb for the event is copied below:
Paul Mason, Zoe Williams, Keir Starmer QC MP and many others – collaborating with Free Word and eleven partners including Apples and Snakes, ARTICLE 19, BRITDOC, Little Atoms, Open Rights Group, openDemocracy and many others, to build an alternative Magna Carta celebration.
Paul Mason, Zoe Williams, Keir Starmer QC MP, Suzanne Moore, Nick Cohen, Bob + Roberta Smith, Dawn Foster, Martin Rowson, Naomi Alderman, Ted Vallance, and many others – all for just a fiver!
With human rights under attack on the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, some of the biggest names in economics, literature, journalism, politics, and art will come together for a day of debate, discussion, film, music, literature, debate, speeches, poetry and polemic.
There’s never been a more important time for a Magna Carta event with teeth – and where better to do this than Clerkenwell, an historic place of dissent?
This event promises to be the most vibrant political, literary, and arts festival this summer.
Tickets just £5 – a limited number available here: http://alternativemagnacarta.org.uk/
