Issue 1 Of Free Speech Is Up & Running!
ISSUE 1 of Free Speech is up and running! It’s been produced by a new Facebook group called Free Speech: How Do We Protect It? Check them out here:

Issue 1 of Free Speech is now available. To get hold of your FREE pdf copy, simply e-mail today.

As the name suggests, the Free Speech group wants to promote, protect and preserve civil and religious liberties for all. The group is interested in all aspects of freedom – however, it is especially interested in instances whereby elements of the State try to restrict freedom of speech, assembly and so on.

Taking Mick Hume’s new book – Trigger Warning: Is the Fear of Being Offensive Killing Free Speech? as its cue, issue 1 of Free Speech takes a look at several areas (such as the internet, comedy and football) where the right to frree speech (and assembly) is under threat from illliberal ‘liberals’ and ‘Reverse-Voltaires’.
As a party that advocates free speech, the National Liberal Party is helping to distribute Free Speech. With this in mind, to get hold of your FREE pdf copy of issue 1 of Free Speech, simply e-mail
O For those who don’t know, Mick Hume is a journalist and author. He is editor-at-large of Spiked – and writes regularly on free-speech issues. He had a weekly column in The Times for ten years, and was described as ‘Britain’s only libertarian Marxist newspaper columnist’. More recently he has written in defence of freedom of speech and a free press in The Times, the Sunday Times, the Independent and the Sun.
In Trigger Warning, Hume claims that freedom of speech is under threat, mainly because many of us don’t want to offend anyone. Indeed, politeness or fear of causing offence is undermining the hard-won rights of freedom of speech and thought that we like to think are the foundations of our society.
The folks behind the Free Speech Facebook site hope to produce Free Speech on a regular basis. This first issue is in pdf format – although they hope that later issues will appear as hard copies as well.
They’re also interested in producing leaflets which promote the concept of civil and religious liberties for all. Anyone who can help out in any capacity should simply leave a message in the comments section of the Free Speech Facebook site –
