Free speech and where we draw the line – an ethical discussion group

Where should the line be drawn around free speech? For humanists, the imprisonment of Mubarak Bala and the deaths of the likes of Avijit Roy and most recently Samuel Paty demonstrate that across the world, people can still come to harm for expressing secular beliefs.

And while in these cases, the perpetrators are clearly wrong, what about where the line isn't so clear? What exactly constitutes hate speech and when it comes to debate on religion what is and is not too far?

Join Sheffield Humanists as its chair, Rajin Chowdhury – a former University debater at a national and international level – will host a discussion group on these issues. You can have your say or simply listen to others.

We hope to see you there.
