in association with

present a seminar

Censorship, Free Speech and Public Discourse: What Price Democracy?

Saturday 11 July 1 pm – 4.30 pm Metcalfe Auditorium, State Library of NSW

 

 

If John Adams is correct and liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people then how can censorship in its many guises be justified? Is the freedom to say what others question or reject without repercussion under threat? Will free speech become a privilege and not a right as we move into the 21st century?

 

Distinguished speakers including Gillian Triggs, Meredith Burgmann, Malcolm Stewart and Peter Doyle will explore these issues.
