14 May – Manifesto Clubnight, Launch of Freedom Summer: What Next for Freedom? Our May Club Night will be the official start of Freedom Summer, a pan-European series of events standing up against the Hyperregulation of everyday life. Following on from the discussion begun by libertarians and freedom campaigners at the Convention on Modern Liberty in February, we will kick-start Freedom Summer by asking What Next for Freedom? What are the key limits to freedom today, and how should we begin to organise against them? We have invited a range of civil libertarians from different campaigns and perspectives to debate the key challenges to freedom in contemporary society.
Speakers include : Josie Appleton (Manifesto Club), Anthony Barnett (Convention on Modern Liberty), Phil Booth (No2ID), Suzanne Moore (columnist, Mail on Sunday)
