Thank you to all members and supporters who have been to our series of recent events in London, Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Manchester. We aim to create a network of free speech-loving people across the UK, meeting in person when possible and online when not.
We are taking a break in August but will be back with our next event on Wednesday 13th September, taking place in person at the Art Worker’s Guild in London and online via Zoom.
We have three speakers offering their perspectives on identity politics and cancel culture from a left-wing perspective. Inspired by the book Cancelled: The Left Way Back from Woke by political scientist and author Umut Ozkirimli, the event will feature Umut himself, Ashley Frawley and Alice Sullivan to consider how the Left can be persuaded to re-adopt free speech as a fundamental value.
Tickets will go on sale later this week, when we will also be in touch with members to offer a special discount code for this Autumn’s Battle of Ideas Festival, taking place on the 28th and 29th of October.
For access to the full range of FSU events and for discount tickets to our events and other people’s, do join the Free Speech Union. If you have suggestions for speakers or events you’d like to see, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
