6pm-7pm doors open 5.30pm at Morley College, 61 Westminster
Bridge Road; 1p
Lecture by Shami Chakrabarti. On 11 September 2001, our
world changed. The West's response to 9/11 has morphed into
a period of exception. Governments have decided that the
rule of law and human rights are often too costly. In On
Liberty, Shami Chakrabarti - who joined Liberty, the UK's
leading civil rights organization, on 10 September 2001 -
explores why our fundamental rights and freedoms are
indispensable. She shows, too, the unprecedented pressures
those rights are under today. Drawing on her own work in
high-profile campaigns, from privacy laws to anti-terror
legislation, Chakrabarti shows the threats to our democratic
institutions and why our rights are paramount in upholding
democracy. This talk forms part of the Morley College Penny
Lecture series. Penny Lectures began in 1882 at The Old Vic
theatre in Waterloo. Topics were chosen to encourage new
thinking and ideas and provided illustrated lectures at
affordable prices…a penny! The lectures were a huge success
and quickly led to the establishment of 'Morley Memorial
College' for Working Men and Women. Now celebrating its
125th anniversary, the college has revived the Penny Lecture
series for a new generation.
